As René Magritte might have said, “Ceci n’est pas un roman.” But is this a novel? Perhaps, in the light of the two protagonists’ fate, it is un grec. It tests, in two contradictory stories, the truth of fiction. It questions the nature of authenticity. It provokes issues such as authorial presence and the reliability of narrative. It explores the relationship between fact and fiction, and between memory and imagination. It can be read as a parody or as an authentic narrative, depending upon the reader’s starting point. It invites the reader into self-reflection as a form of confession. It is a palindrome. It is a thoughtful read with many cinematic references. It a fascinating mind game. “The book is also a masterpiece of irreverent persiflage – an impolite gesture at literary pretensions which light-heartedly embrace the serious and the sinister.” - Brewster Chamberlin, Radovic's Dilemma.
