This is a facinating book. Quite different, well written and thought provoking.
The Forward of the book is as interesting as the novel itself. The mother of the novelist goes on a crusade to get the lone work of her dead son published.
The publisher writes "There was no getting out of it; only one hope remained-that I could read a few pages and that they would be bad enough for me, in good conscience, to read no farther...In this case I read on. And on. First with the sinking feeling that it was not bad enough to quit, then with a prickle of interest, then with a growing excitment, and finally an incredulity: surely it was not possible that it was so good."
This book belongs in league with the classics. A must read.
Read this book. Trust me on this...Its worth it.
