A delight, but avoid the introduction,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Severed Head (Vintage Classics) (Paperback)
This book is a delight, but I felt moved to post a review to warn people not to read the introduction by Miranda Seymour before reading the novel, because it gives away many of the important plot developments. Half the fun of the novel comes from some of the unexpected events, so do read the introduction afterwards rather than before. Luckily this is what I did, so it didn't spoil anything.
