hmm, my 2nd NZ book in a row, and also a bit turned upside down and playing with both time and perspective (as did "the rehearsal"). i was initially worried that there would be many whole chapters written in this rather dry, choppy old man's dairy entries, but turns out there was just the one. (was that a forgotten motif, or a mirror of how random life can be, with threads easily picked up and then abandoned?)
for a book preoccupied with death, it was surprisingly funny (relatively speaking). i liked the author's voice (is it too cliche to say that? no one's reading this anyway, right? good - just checking)
