A unique perspective - highly recommended! Dec 11, 2009
A wonderful portrayal of the unconventional that challenges conformity to societal norms and role assignments based on class status and celebrates the unique individuals love of art, beauty, intellect, and meaning. The two seemingly incongruous narrators who live in the same building in Paris are unwaveringly fascinating and the secondary characters (primarily parents, siblings, friends, neighbors, pets and a psychoanalyst) offer a rich background for the narrative.
Clever, humorous, uplifting, compelling, and very well-written I highly recommend this book to others.
