What can I say that hasn’t been said?
Hell, what can I say that I haven’t already said about her other books.
And one of the hardest things is avoiding superlatives.
So let me talk about an Alfa Romeo.
Specifically the 1960 Alfa Romeo Giuletta Sprint.
The greatest car ever made!
OK, it wasn’t the fastest car on the road, it had an underpowered 1.3L engine under the hood. It didn’t handle like a Porsche or a Ferrari. But who really cares about any of that crap? Certainly not me. The Giuletta had charisma. You see one and you can’t help but looking again…and again. The more you look at it, the more beautiful it gets.
And that’s this book. It’s brilliant, it’s sublime, I wanted it to go on forever.
