I was intrigued when I heard of this book, being one of only a hundred (or so) books written in Basque since the invention of the printing press. Also, the descriptions I read made it seem like it surreal elements.

I enjoyed it, but not as much as I thought I would. It's a stitched-together collection of short stories, that I would have liked to have had be more cohesive. The ending, in particular, seemed contrived, and not particularly satisfying.
