Thanks for linking Max, and I obviously agreed with you about the American section! I too think Keun should have a much higher profile — very underrated, to my mind. That certainly makes some sense given the impression one gets of him from that fairly recent Pushkin release, Summer Before the Dark. All in all, it sounds excellent — and I love that final quote, the one about the bouillabaisse.
Customer Reviews: Child of All Nations
A sort of melting pot of Mediterranean life. This sounds like a quite wonderful little book, thanks for the great review. I generally like a child narrator too so I shall have to add this to my wishlist.
