totally random bookswap score. I really love cracking a book that I know absolutely nothing about!

***

So fun! So British! So snarky! I guess this is kind of like James Bondish? It's about one of those dapper young playboys who leads a decadent artist's life by day and like works for the CIA by night. It's all old-timey and very, very British. Kind of like Johannes Cabal the Necromancer , except less noir and more caper. It's fluffy and fun, nothing too substantial. I should have saved it for the nine-hour plane ride I've got to Alaska next weekend.

Oh also? I just found out that there's a graphic novel edition, which I'd love to get my hands on.
