One of the best books I've ever read,
This review is from: The Lover (Flamingo) (Paperback)
I chanced across this book when waiting for some female friends who went to see <<Bridget Jones>> at the cinema. I finished book just as the film finished. I'm glad I read this book rather than saw that film.
A flow of consciousness embedded in romantic fatalism. Very feminine writing. It took me on a journey of youthful experimentation, of not quite knowing but knowing, of cultural conflicts, of the exotic Indo-China in that colonial era of a faded dusty yellowness.
Strongly recommended to all those who enjoy the writing of V Nabokov.
