My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The book is a study of the nebulous demarcation that segues from ‘normal’ to ‘insanity’. The story is peopled with idiosyncratic characters that range from exhibiting mild eccentricities to complete schizophrenic withdrawal.
The author has closely observed human behaviour and is quite familiar with mental disorders. The writing style is lucid and gripping. It is a tad morbid in tone with echoes of “The World According to Garp” by John Irwing.
