it was amazing

First book of the Into Their Labours trilogy (with Once in Europa and Lilac and Flag. The three have to be read together. It's a true trilogy; the books are distinct (and even have different forms--Pig Earth mixes short stories and poetry, Lilac and Flag is the only one that's a novel as such), and stand on their own, but the sum is much greater than the individual parts. One of the greatest works written in English in the past 50 years.
