The Sunday Book review was devoted to fiction in translation and was well received on Vincennes Street. I found James Wood's treatment of the Bolano to be just. The other reviews were of equal intrigue and while I would be elated if this was a permanent shift in direction for the NYT, my doubts will remain and I am looking forward to the next Crichton review of Scooter's prison memoir.

As an homage, I paid Billy Pilgrim a private return and i enjoyed it thusly. I also tunnelled 70 pages into the Rotters Club by Jonathan Coe: not really my gear, that's all.
