It took me forever to read this book. This book reminds me of a modern-day "Alice in Wonderland" with the part of Alice being played by a middle-aged concert pianist who is spending a few days in an un-named mid-sized European city that is filled with inhabitants as crazy and ridiculous as the characters that Alice meets in Wonderland. The book has a dreamlike quality. The main character, this pianist, is often lost wandering around trying to find his way. Distance between places seem unnecessarily long and then places are unexpectedly encoutered. Buildings have long corridors within which the pianist is trying to find his way. People are unexpectedly encountered. People are hard to find. Places are hard to find. Relationships are undefined. Behavior is bizarre. The book is full of ironic situations and the ridiculousness of human behavior.
