I wonder why he wrote this, like what kind of mood was he in that made him want to write this story. I don't know, it seems like he must have been enormously tired or something. It kind of just clunks along and then fades out with a long epilogue. And then there's all that dissatisfaction-with-your-parents type of nonsense. It veers in and out of seriousness unexpectedly. I still can't decide if I liked it or not.

Maybe my own country's life as a story ended after the Second World War, when it was the richest and most powerful nation on Earth, when it was going to ensure peace and justice everywhere, since it alone had the atom bomb.
