I reread this book (after reading it when it first came out in translation in 2002)and was as mesmerized by it the second time as the first. It is one of those books that gets in the bone and the marrow--the images an themes have resonated with me for many years. For me it goes to the same place emotionally as Saramago's All the Names, one of my favorite books of all time. I highly recommend this enigmatic, powerful punch in a tiny package book.
