it was amazing

An astonishing book, as impactful (is that a word?) in its way as "War and Peace." (2010)

(2012) Still an amazing book, two years later. I don't adore every page of it--I get bogged down when Mann gets abstruse--but the book is so full of heart and soul and mind, great characters, interesting conversation, and fine writing.
