My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This one will give you whip lash it’s so fast and engaging. I can’t say I know if it’s about anything except the act of doing things and having them done. Images captured, buildings erected, reprieves granted, disasters ensued and and and “Bob;” a sort of person or a singularity maybe. What floored me about the book was how fluid the thinking was, jumping from one register to another, stacking completely disparate images so beautifully I was amazed. I kept thinking.. “how the hell did she write this?” because Portugal keeps stride with the chaos and sort of whispers back to it. It was stunning and perplexing. Everyone should read this!
