A Peculiar Composition

In a fine review of J.M.G. Le Clézio's novel The Prospector at Words Without Borders, Geoff Wisner offers what is perhaps the strangest description of the book to date: it is “as if The Adventures of Tom Sawyer were rewritten by Proust.” I love it: riverboats and ladyfingers. We may have to put this on the next softcover reprint.
