review 1: I have been looking forward to reading Chloe Aridjis' second novel, Asunder, ever since I read her Book of Clouds (previously reviewed). The language of both novels is stunning. Aridjis has a fabulous eye for description. Asunder follows a young woman who is a guard at London's N...

review 1: If you want insight into being a barely functioning depressed Jewish Mexican expat living in Berlin, go for it. I didn't find the main character to be very interesting. Or sympathetic. When she wasn't irritating me, I was just bored. She works part-time transcribing tape recor...

review 1: A stunningly beautiful novel of a young Mexican-Jewish woman wandering the streets of Berlin after the fall of the wall. Her walks explore the underlying history of WWII, of Gestapo and Stasi. She wanders isolated, only slightly engaged with the people around her, connected to he...
