    What can I possibly say of a book such as this? It surprises at every turn. Perhaps the only constant is the language - ever-beautiful, stunning. This is language into which you can sink, as into a down comforter, language in which you can bathe and wrap yourself, language in which you want to luxuriate. Be prepared to encounter words like "culottes". With such language, Nao weaves an incredibly moving and vulnerable narrative. Perhaps it is better understood as music, moving through different moods. Its plot does not evolve over time the way one expects of a conventional plot, but rather turns and contorts and resembles more the blink of an eye than the passage of days. (Time, the Gentleman, plays tricks here.)It resembles circular movement. This is a narrative of a moment. The story of a moment. Here we face the grandness of Desire and Time in this most delicate and minute of containers. Nao writes with great inventiveness and depth. Prepare yourself, if you can, to... More > encounter philosophical finesse + exquisite language + innovative structure + tenderness. This is a narrative to fall in love with. To desire, endlessly.< Less
