it was amazing

Brilliant, in my opinion, writing, I had a chance to communicate briefly with Mr. Chee. Thanks to goodreads I discovered a writer whose work I'll follow for many years to come. Not since The Bluest Eye have I read a novel dealing with such tragic subject matter, with such sustained power and hauntingly beautiful prose.
