Why did you read this book?: Because The Secret History and The Little Friend are awesome.
Has Jeremy read it?: Yes. I was waiting until he finished to put up my review, but I should have written it before my opinion was influenced by his.
42 Word Review: Black-market art thriller meets literary coming-of-age story. I was immediately taken in by the characters and prose, and I enjoyed it enormously. The plot- and character-driven elements didn’t always mesh perfectly, making the ending feel slightly anticlimactic, but it was still wonderful.
