Read from March 27 to April 24, 2012

As far as post-colonial ex-pat descent into madness fiction goes, this one is okay. I found it to be a challenging read, but it got easier once I realized it wasn't necessary to understand every word or phrase, particularly the Spanish and German (?) ones. I think it will be memorable because it made my brain hurt, but I am not sure it was worth it.

Edit: Moving up to 4 stars a year later. This one aged well for me.
