another Lezard tip - not bad, not at all essential, reminds us how untouchably great GG Marquez was; a pity it will be most remembered for some of the best sex writing. an inapt title.
this is the kind of novel, however accomplished, which makes me think of fiction writing as inherently lazy - imagining extraordinary things without stretching a muscle, when a year or three's hard work in libraries and in the field can uncover truly extraordinary people and events that really matter.
