Dunbar — Edward St. Aubyn
A modern version of King Lear (part of Hogarth initiative).
How German Is It — Walter Abish
Angels — Denis Johnson
Not sure what to make of this one: good story, good prose, holds no punches, but ultimately what was the point of the novel?
Miss Chopsticks — Xinran
Good, albeit simple, theme of changes in China, especially emphasizing the differences between rural China and the big city. A bit too simple though: probably best to consider this novel for juveniles.
Akitadas First Case — I. J. Parker
Short work but introduces Akitadas.
