(Qualifier: Ages since I read this.)
I'll be honest, I remember very little about this book. It is supposedly very clever and all about authenticity and stuff. I seem to recall that it involves various Parisian writers hanging out with teenage boys.
Perhaps this is the type of book that repays repeat readings; I couldn't make much of it. If it is very subtle and deep, it certainly doesn't give away its subtlety and depth readily. The characters did not involve me, and I don't recall a great deal of dramatic tension.
