Quite simply one of the best and most unique novels I've ever read. His use of langue is very flexible; the only similar experience I can recall is when I first read Proust. Admittedly the novel will not appeal to everyone; it is useful to have some familiarity with Indian religion and mysticism to get many of the references and the general feeling of the novel.
Just to get a sence of it, the opening lines :
"You remember, J., you said to me: Tell me you need me, and I'll come.
I need you now, you know what I mean. I do not truly nee you. Yet I need you. Would you therefore come? Would you return as parrot, betel vine or bodhisattva. Sometimes I dream of you and call you Kadambari.
You remember that winter afternoon in London, in the Green Park, feeding the pigeons, I told you: I'm going to marry S.- And you said Really?"
