I borrowed a copy of this brick of a novel from my pal, Thomas. I knew nothing of it, except for a quick glance at the back of it in a bookshop, but I figured if Thomas was reading it, it must be worth a read. Glad I did. It’s a fantastical ride through a mixed bag of stories and personal histories reaching over the past and geography—ending in familiar territory, in Scandinavia. If you have an interest in the 60’s, great writing, voice and a dose of puzzle-solving, grab yourself a copy.
