In Dublin, Ireland, the Book of Kells is stolen from the Trinity College Library and Peter McGarr must solve the mystery of "whodunit" before his enemies successfully frame him and destroy his career. But who exactly his enemies are isn't always clear. I really enjoyed this novel. I didn’t care so much for the fact that almost every female character addressed in the novel was sexualized in some way. So much attention was given to their physical appearance and whether or not that was an attractive appearance.

This new novel by the prolific and always inventive Everett will, with its odd title alone, bedevil librarians, booksellers, and bibliographers. It is, however, an innovative exploration of the outer limits of narrative ambiguity, and it’s also a deeply felt book about a father and son. Our initial narrator, visiting his elderly, invalided father, is handed an autobiographical manuscript presumably written by the elder as if the son had composed it, but even that narrative, this novel’s core, changes shape from segment to segment. demonstrates that a literary work can be cerebral, emotionally affecting, and highly readable at the same time. The novel also turns out to be relentlessly funny. In a more perfect world the novelist Percival Everett would dominate the bestseller list to such a degree that they would need to give him his own category, Harry Potter style.

The same could be said of its creator, with the emphasis on "fierce". The same could be said of its creator, with the emphasis on "fierce". I loved his writing, I tried (unsuccessfully) to sell his book to foreign publishers (a low American offer was rejected with contempt), but it was never enough. There were constant tirades about the injustice of his lot and the wickedness of the London publishing establishment. And yet somehow our relationship never quite broke down.
