    One of my favorite books ever The story is very simple, but the language Berger uses to tell it is amazing.

  2. Rachel Kowal Rachel Kowal says:

    Okay, this book is pretty disjointed, and it took me much longer to get through it than it should have But I m feeling generous Berger is doing some interesting things here stylistically, and there is joy in these pages amidst the dark undertones Read pages 83 133 I d read him again, though the second half of this book dragged on for far too long.

  3. Rowena Rowena says:
