any book that starts with a quote from "Life and Death of a Worm"
what is not to like?
can not believe this novel was published twenty years ago. And I have just stumbled on it in a Goodwill store.
reminds me of drinking a royal crown cola out of one the old bottles with the picture of Egyptian pyramids on it. When the bottle was full the dark cola showed up as shadows of the pyramids, but as I drank more and more the shadows would disapear into clear glass, and I would take smaller and smaller sips to make the shadows last longer.
this is a sipping novel for me dont want to rush through it.
