An interesting and intriguing read, albeit a rather difficult book to review, with many developments and twists, many levels and layers, less a linear plot (or two) than the perfect depiction of places at a certain time, of ambiences, of atmospheres. Everything lies within the strong evocative power of the words the author has chosen. The writing is effortless, erudite without being pedantic, sometimes ornate, sometimes crisp and straightforward, in perfectly paced alternations. Robert Ferro—a great name in literature.
