another book within a book

Margaret Atwood’s The Blind Assassin (2000) has to jump queue, even though I haven’t finished At Swim-Two-Birds. It’s due back at the library on Wednesday with no more renews.

I’ve read the blurb, and am a bit annoyed it’s another nested narrative. That’s three in six from Lacayo and Grossman; they seem really taken with the technique. Personally, I’m exhausted from the mental gymnastics required to read another book like this. I need some literary M&Ms and nacho chips right now, not another dégustation.

Anyway, it sounds like quite an intriguing novel, and I’m very excited about reading it.
