When a book is translated from its original language, one doesn’t know exactly how good it is. It could be the responsibility of the translator. In the case of this book, clearly both the writer and translator are brilliant. This book is one of the most interesting books of fiction I have read in quite a long while. The characters are distinct, intertwined, and compelling. The story begins with the young architect finding his famous writing friend dead at the foot of her stairs. Since she is aged, it clearly looks like an accident. But was the tramp who walks the neighborhood involved? Will the architect’s devotion to his friend swamp his marriage to the beautiful television anchor? Will the young timid Parisian scholar uncover the mysteries contained in the old writer’s books? Will her mentor, the very famous Chilean poet, reveal any of his relation to the deceased? If these questions seem trivial, let me assure you that the story and characters are so gripping that you will be enthralled. This is a great book and one worthy of your attention. In fact, the story will command you attention as you, like I, keep reading far into the night.
