Really enjoyed this one. Perhaps more a long short story than novel. Easy to see Bennett's playwriting background in the dialogue, but the jumps between points of view - which I liked - would be hard to stage. Story inspired plenty of "what if this happened to me?" thinking. Lot of great humor here, though I know that some references were lost on American me.
