What to say about this book? It's one of the five best books I've ever read, and I think I've only met one person who considers it anything less than one of the best books of the 20th Century. Is that enough to recommend it to you?

I also wrote about this book for The Millions last year. Everything I said then still stands. I can't wait to re-read this.

Tess Malone I just finished this today and already I want to reread it. Obviously, I will wait to do so, but it was one of the best novels I've ever read and even that doesn't do it justice.
