Customer Review

on 3 April 2013
This gem of a book reminded me intensely of Anthony Powell, with its preoccupation with some real-life minor literary characters and musings on the minutiae of personal relationships. The section on the contents of rubbish bins had me wondering if we were going off course but the plot was resolved beautifully. A good translation for once, although it would be hard to find a university novel less like 'Small World', to which the blurb unhelpfully compares it. Tempted to read more of his stuff, although I wonder whether this could be a one-off.
