I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, which recalls the heady days of foreign newspaper correspondents as detailed in memoirs by Martha Gellhorn, George Smalley, Georgie Anne Geyer and, most famously, Ernest Hemingway, when important worldwide stories were more than occasionally spiced with innuendo and questionable details. Its scattershot delivery reflects the haze Henry lives in, a detachment from real life that fuels his travels and writing, but eventually leads to a clearer path. Recommended for those seeking a comedic adventure to transport them, if only briefly, from the drudgery of daily existence.
