really liked it

David Bajo has produced a brilliant first novel. Like the Miguel de Cervantes masterpiece that plays such a large role in the plot, this is a book about books, the characters therein, and the complicated relationship of fiction and "reality." Perceptions define the world, and perspectives, ever shifting, create those defining perceptions. Sex, mathematics, running, travel, conversation, art, food, literary fiction, the four-dimensional nature of physical books, and love all play their parts. In the end, we are the Knight of the Sorrowful Face or Alonso the Good by choice -- but is it our choice or the choice of Sancho Panza or the choice of Miguel de Cervantes? To find out, we must read, sometimes between the lines.
