It's a great bildungsroman with style that reminded me of Umberto Ecco. It's a great "mystery" type book centered around a boy growing up in post-war Spain in the 1950's. It's not a classical whodoneit, and not a typical loss of innocence tale. I highly recommend it.
Good to hear...this is on my "to read" list.
