The incredible blurbs on the back cover of the book promise a book of great hilarity and insight. The bleak truth is that it contains very little of either. An obsessive self interest and self absorbtion drowns out any sympathy that you might want to give to Oliver Walzer. The star table tennis player schtick (borrowed from Forrest Gump) is extraordinarily tiring --you wanted to clout both central character and author with a racquet or something and have them wake up and talk about something else.
This is a shame because I thought the current hype around his latest book was genuine discovery of a new voice. I have enjoyed other books of his and hope that he regained some touch in his most recent novel.
