A very different kind of book

Written as a series of vignettes that sometimes hangs together, sometimes not. The narrative is about time and place and how we deal with both through life, but it is also about memory loss and the effects of dementia, the impact of war, the end of the Cold War and a lot more. The author tries to cover a lot of ground, sometimes whimsical, sometimes profound, rarely boring but also not sufficiently engaging for me. Kudos to the translator (from Bulgarian), this is not an easy book to get your head around.
