Since I have no idea how to approach a review, I’m going to provide the Jhumpa Lahiri quote on the back of the book:
A novel of unique emotional intensity and exceptional beauty, hypnotic intimate, harrowing. A portrait of a man torn between a woman and another man, groundbreaking for its time, it remains a transcendent novel.”
Thoughts: Gorgeously written. So many layers.
Rating: Four slices of pie. No pie mentioned.
