A delightful puzzle of a book that had some excellent lines, and explored deep themes about reading and writing. The language was light and funny and insightful. While reading I so felt the urge to pick up my pen and attempt to write fiction myself — a sort of autonomous mimicry of the sort I only feel when reading the rarest of authors. Worth spending a couple of evenings with, and moreso if you have a book club to discuss the content with!
