Read in February, 2010

A strange little book - its hard to tell sometimes if I was enjoying it because of the narrative (which is strangely single-minded and wandering at the same time) or because of the image of a lost culture or because of the intriguing mix of quaint and extremely dark. On the whole, though, the prose just carries everything.

After reading his autobiography its pretty clear that his protagonist is based on him. I'm looking forward to reading more singer and I wonder how much of his work is like that.
