Mon dieu, this book has it all. A frustrated anthropology PhD student who will probably never finish his thesis. A secret society of mortuary workers. Beautiful landscapes, reincarnation, agrarian life! Translating Mathias Enard must be a bit like translating Joyce, and Frank Wynne tracks all of Enard's cultural and historical allusions with overwhelming accuracy. Tons of brain-heavy fun. A marvelous gift.
