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

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.

The writing was great as expected; can't quite remember details of the plot, but this was a good read.

I learned that I am glad I do not have to look for a job as a housekeeper in London in the 60s.
