Read in February, 2009

"Something wild and beautiful and full of woe," says Irishman and plumber Christy Slane. That about sums up this lovely novel, the story of Lev, a Russian immigrant to London whose hopeless hometown in rural Russia becomes the victim of "public works." A brisk and satisfying read on many levels. Tremain has a gift for rendering the many layers and colors of loneliness; Lev's loneliness--wild and beautiful and full of woe--is something I'll carry with me for a while.
