The Woman who Lost Her Soul by Bob Shacochis
on October 10, 2016
This book is a contemporary masterpiece, an epic of wars and massacre, deceptions and self-deceptions, of love and hope and sex, of deceit and manipulation, of disillusion and illusions, multiple perspectives of life, suffering, disassociation, and moments of total clarity. The plot jumps back and forth in time, countries, and people, from the end of World War II to the present, from war torn countries of Haiti, Dubrovnik, and Istanbul to the US, from the upbringing of a young girl by a spy/charming/ manipulative father to the men in her life
This book is haunting, dark, and compelling with just enough touches of poignant sensitivity and sensualitiy to leave the reader with a bit of hope. The author's use of language is supreme.
