Acquired via BookCrossing 31 Oct 2007 – NSS Autumn gift from AFIR

An unusual and intriguing novel with a protagonist whose fatal flaw seems to be his rivalry with a fellow schoolmate and psychoanalyst, it’s told in a multi-layered and multi-form narrative, with metafiction heaped upon metafiction – but for all its playfulness and cleverness, it’s still a dam’ good story!

I am going to press this upon Matthew, as I think it’s right up his street, and will then probably ring it.
