"I recall a book about a man trying to get home. That was the essence of the entire story; well except for the fact he was walking home. Since I read this book I've told many a fellow reader about this literary gem and, purposefully, given them this sparse description. I've done this largely to gauge their reaction. Almost universally the reaction was lukewarm at best. Then I would elicit a promise to have them read the book. Again, almost universally, when I saw them soon after they too had nothing but praise for the book, Cold Mountain by Charles Fraizer.
Flesh by Khanh Ha is this type of book."--Sean Keefer, author of The Trust
