He saw her silhouette and knew it was Anashi; there was no mistaking her physique. No one else in the village had her unique shapely curves; her height was shared with a smattering few, but the contours or the graceful way she glided was distinctive to Anashi and no one else.It's my first giveaway win, sure, but it has a 'pull' anyway. Drumming on youtubeThis is going on to Hayes in Italy next. I will jot down thoughts as I read and edit later:Okay here we go... There is a guide/author's note entitled How To Read This Book, which I chose to ignore in case of spoilers (not to mention feeling pretty well patronised. To my mind it was as if I had been given a paint by numbers plan of action to accompany a Picasso) and I dived straight into the beginning which is highly noticeable by it's absence, or rather, it's barest existence.So back I flipped to this authors note:What you will not find in this book ...There is no protagonist. There is focus on different characters at different stages of this book. There is a beginning, or the semblance of it.[...:]---Later - found this an abstract read but not without it's good side or points of interest. For me though, I would have preferred a less mystic/pomo writing style *shrugs* as there is an exceptional story hiding in there somewhere.
