really liked it
bookshelves: serious-fiction, read-in-2009, calibre-hoard
Read in July, 2009

Loved the way the author used language as a poet might, loved the way he wrote about cricket. Can't say that the main character's journey through the book was a comfortable one, but one I'm glad to have taken. It also gave me a view of New York that I don't think I've seen much of from tv/cinema. Recommended.
