Shockingly good in parts, but I found it a bit of a slog. I suspect this is really a longer, baggier version of previous work. One for the fans?

A really excellent book-- if pressed to describe it, I guess I could say it made me think of both Sartre's "No Exit" and the film, "Last Year at Mariaenbad" but also throw in three fascinating female characters - two visual artists and one writer. I'm left not sure what exactly I've read but I know that I liked it.

Happy this took me a few days to read. The heaviness calls for careful attention and time to marinate.
