There will be this and much more for you to discover.
I hope you enjoy the novel as much as I did.
This is a self-aware protagonist, who lets you in on his love/hate relationships with his close family members; who easily discusses his cowardice; and who clearly maps his route to solitary success, with nearly everyone else expected to be a cheering bystander. It's not very often you get to see someone stare in the mirror and call out in such a clear and loving manner all the lines, moles, scars, and twitches that represent the internal ambitions, jealousies, and frustrations of a human life. While it exposes David, the lead character, to our own disgust and criticism, it also raises a mirror to the reader, challenging him or her to discover and accept the same careful examination.
This is a funny book, as if you meshed 1960s British-genre angry young men with Woody Allen/Larry David self-absorbed hilarity. You can't stop wanting to know what happens to David next (and mostly, things do happen to him, as opposed to David taking the initiative; I feel at times like David's frequent trips to the renowned Brazilian pastry shop at the center of this novel are like a late night TV host settling into his chair and desk ready to find out what's new with his quest). Nearly all of it is tinged with humor, both gentle and outrageous.
This is a book filled with quick, acerbic, and absorbing dialogue - you can feel the author's love for the back and forth between characters. In his first book - Forty Years Later - Mr. Griffel showed his talent for this in a furious exchange of emails escalating in tone, humor, and even danger.Read more ›
