The narrative voice of this novel reminded me of Tom McCarthy's Remainder, but the narrative wasn't as compelling or as tightly constructed. Still, this was an engaging story about reality and perception, and about how to construct the perfect work of art.

I was especially interested in how Boullosa handled the bilingual portions of dialogue as a Mexican writer. The insufficiency of linguistic translation in the novel comes to represent the inability of an artist to fully "translate" his or her ideas into language or image. Actually, thinking about the subtle way novel handled this just convinced me to give it another star. ( )
