What a glorious, magical, mystical novel! About a stolen bicycle. What? Those words and it’s about a stolen bicycle? Indeed. Let’s start with bicycles. You’ll find that’s a much deeper subject than you ever knew. And Taiwan, a culture and territory almost totally unknown to me. WWII in southeast Asia with elephants. Can’t lose with elephants, now can you? And more, but this book is far, far more than its oh, so interesting parts. This is a magnificent swirling crystal of a book. Look into it and lose yourself. A modern masterpiece.
