This novella is so absorbing and poetic that I kept holding out my plate for more. The language is good, old-fashioned Anglo-Saxon writing that manages to paint images deftly. Follow the protagonist from one tragedy to another, and feel his emotional shock absorbers take hits, as if you were there. It’s an excellent, first-person account of someone grappling with depression and its relentless demons.
