It is a good story about gravely serious matters, but it is also a satire and an ironic diminution of self. It is a novel both hysterically funny and deeply troubling. It just so happened that I read it with a cracked rib. Breathing hurt, let alone laughing. Krueger made me emit animalistic howls that were the purest blend of pleasure and pain. Anthony Powell, with his veneration for the accidental and preposterous, could not have arranged things better.
