Any points Wolf gained by virtue of his creativity where layout and text are concerned are somewhat negated by the lackluster story and the lack of any sort of resolution regarding the character of Vera. I got to the end of this novel and said out loud to my copy, "That's IT?!" I'm not someone who needs everything spelled out for me, and I like ambiguity as much as the next person, but goddamn, that character was irritating and I needed some sort of explanation to make me feel like I hadn't just wasted 362 pages of my time.

All that being said, this was one of the most creatively written novels I've read. I felt that the method in which Wolf chose to overlap his dialogue--creating fugues of conversation laid out on stanzas--was inspired and definitely contributed to the overall "summer" feel of the book.
