really liked it

This is a beautifully written story. If ever you doubt the power of a talented author's ability to depict entire periods, characters and scenes with an economy of words, pick this up and the first ten pages will have you hooked. Elegant, beautiful. I was only left wanting to have more of the writing, more of the life of Grainier. Bravo Denis Johnson.
