Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments The Last Samurai, Helen Dewitt, 2000, United States, NOVEL

"...if helen dewitt wasn't technically a child prodigy herself, her debut novel cements her as a prodigious novelist ... it pulses with life, stripping away the protective decorations of monumental importance so much literature insulates itself with to get to the emotional core of common intellectual crises..."
