Imagine a typical mid century European-continental novel. It's existentialist. It's full of angst. There are large dollops of absurd events. There is a political point in there somewhere, but everything is so personal and subjective that you're never sure what that political point might be. And there's lots of reflection. Okay. And now, instead of the middle-class, twenty or thirty something, over-educated male protagonist, put in a completely impoverished pubescent girl who lacks the words to describe any kind of emotion, thought or abstract notion. And you have this book, which is, thanks to its hero, far more interesting than anything I've read by Camus/Sartre/Moravia et al. I don't know how accurate the translation is, but it's very readable.
