Like all of Perlman's books , this is beautifully written. Character portrayal is very good. The plot has a couples of aspects which make it interesting. The title ,which is soon explained is apt. I would also recommend The street sweeper. Margaret
I absolutely loved this book set in my home city. The eloquence of speech, the chemistry between the various characters, the manipulations and bribery that somehow benefitted everyone. Very memorable, very pacy. I highly recommend.
Great writing, very smart and a lead character who is humble and caring. Disappointed by the ending which really finished mid action leaving it up to the reader to complete. Characters were intriguing and well rounded.
