there is such strong storytelling within "forgetfulness". Just manages to highlight dysfunctionalities of american society, and weave questions on mercy and justice (and revenge) into a surprisingly quick read. the thoughtful moral urgency exhibited by the protagonist and his crisis of conscience following his wife's murder by moroccan terrorists compose the core of the novel. worth reading though there are too many digressions.
