really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, lit-fic
Read in June, 2009

a poetic, lyrical investigation of the nature of truth and the nature of story, set in a neolithic village on the verge of encountering bronze age technology.

OR

the story of a horny one-armed inverterate liar, a semi-starved prostitute with a love of goose-flesh, a village full of rock-bashers, and a few sailboats that don't stop for lunch.

Jefferson I read this after your review. I'm glad I did. This review is sweet and right on the money.


Sean I'm glad you liked it, Jefferson. I haven't read anything else by Crace, but maybe I should - I can remember this novel vividly.

read more Crace!


Sean I cant tell if that's an order or a suggestion, but either way it's a good idea. I think I'll add some Crace to my on-deck pile.
