penelopewanders Sounds like one I'd enjoy reading if you feel like making a ring of it!

okyrhoe Yes, why not - thanks for the hint! It may find some interest on BC given the recent events in Egypt. I'm 1/4 into the book; I chose it this month as part of the MENA group's reading "tour."
Aciman's writing has that retro feel (like in Call Me By Your Name), and once again I feel as if I'm reading one of the classic European writers of decades past. In this book though it is more suitable to the story's temporal setting.

penelopewanders I look forward to reading your final review... and if you do decide to make a ring, do sign me up (European shipping preferred, please).
All the best - I've been meaning to send you a card since the new year... but you know how good intentions go...
