Trezza Azzopardi: Remember Me

This is an odd, startling book. I believe I've tried to read it before and couldn't get into it, but this time I coulnd't put it down. The story of a self-described "derelict," the narrative bounces back and forth between time the present and alternatively clear and foggy memories. These memories are often painful- the multi-named narrator has very few positive moments to share. A relatively fast read, don't be confused: it's not "lite"-this is a good book to curl up with under the covers and dwell on.
