Read in February, 2009

I haven't been reading much lately.
In fact, I can't even remember the last six months, so I had a clean palate when I went to devour this slim book.
I received it as an xmas gift from my nephew; I was dubious because it was fiction, but since my nephew is hella smarter than I am, I decided to give it a shot.
A Month in the Country is as spectacular as it is sparse.
The story emerges from a thin fog, nearly comes into focus and then dissipates.
A prose body obfuscating a poetic soul, the literary equivalent of a Hershey's Kiss filled with caramel.
Quite possibly one of the best books that I've ever read.
