I had heard of this title only ever as a movie (that I never was interested in watching because of L.DiCaprio playing the lead...). I came across it while browsing in a NY bookstore and the blurp on the back was appealing enough, so I got it.

It is a very fluid and comfortable read. The life story of Mr Wolff is frustrating enough, but at the same time exciting and got me interested in the follow-up "In Pharao's Army", that I have heard only good things about. Will probably get that in the near future.

Very good as coming-of-age stories go. Recommended!
