Quote:

The long days seduce all thought away, and we lie like the lizards in the sun, postponing our lives indefinitely.

Review:

It felt like reading a poem in prose form and like no other book I’ve read it felt very much like being inside the head of the protagonist. The language can be dense which I’m sure will turn some off, but it makes a short novel feel much more substantial.
