How the author can cover so much ground in such a sparse manner is beyond me-- she can capture in just two brief sentences what others may take a paragraph to convey. It felt a bit like poetry set as prose, with short staccato sentences playing off the flow of passages dissecting the human psyche. Marvelous and gratifying, it all ends relatively well.
