    The forgotten middle child in the McCarthy canon, but probably my favorite. Post-Cold War Eastern Europe has been done in other English-language novels, such as Prague or Russian Debutante's Handbook, but this one is the best. Art-forgery has also been done in other novels, notably The Recognitions, but the entertaining network of personalities and plots in this novel make up for the lack of originality in concept. A long description of how its central-ish character forges a 19th-century iconographic painting is one of the most beautiful depictions of a craft that I've ever read, shown in such exquisite detail that I felt as if I could pull off the forgery on my own.

    Spacey

    I hope this book is as pretentious as i think it is; otherwise, I'm exposing myself as superficial and lacking appreciation for good literature. My advice is to read the Afterword first if you want to have the foggiest notion of what's going on. I suspect this is a political allegory, but I doubt that many Americans will have enough background to figure it out. -- catwak
