How you respond to this book will depend on how you feel about novels that blur the line between fiction, memoir, biography and history. If you're a fan of W.G. Sebald, you're in for a treat. The novel follows the trip of two archivists traveling across the country. It is a novel of relationships (told from a variety of viewpoints), a document of how we attempt to understand the world and ourselves, and an attempt to make sense of identity in the current political climate.
