A curious and very good novel, ostensibly about the rehabilitation of a recluse but also a satire on the Californian search for truth and meaning. All of the characters however minor were memorable; the writer in hiding, the philosophical donut vendor, the pack of feral chihuahuas… Entertaining, well written and a good, surreal ending.
