Inappropriate, egoistical, satirical, and funny are the terms that describe this book perfectly. From the opening hyperbole about happiness and phallus, Alex’s main protagonist takes you down the road of the weird, the absurd and the witty. The story is set in Ho Chi Minh City in 1973 and follows the life of a journalist and cultural critic as he comes to terms with his own failings one of which happens to be misogyny. Well written and extremely funny at parts.
