The imagination, energy and scope of this novel are breathtaking. It's incredible to me that this expansive world was contained in one person. The narration, generous and grand, bursts from the pages and is a real treat to read. I found myself fascinated by the characters in this book--fraught and desperate and weird, but also very human.
