it was amazing

A beautifully written mystery about an insane, egomaniacal archaeolgist. It's got a bit of a Pale Fire nod to it, but easier to parse than Nobokov. Very different than Phillips' first novel Prague, but perhaps even more enjoyable. Both novels deal with self-deception, but in vastly different ways.
