Dept. of Speculation

Sad, but in a riveting way. One of those "fiction" books that you know it's real. Too real.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The dust-jacket said this book was "meant to be devoured in one sitting." My response to that instruction was an overwhelming impulse to read it one page per day for six months. Or maybe to read a few pages and throw it out the window.

Sometimes I violate the rules of the road simply to show everyone that I'm not tame.

Mostly I read books. I read this one last night in one sitting.
