Diplomatic compound in China in the 1970s She assures us it s true in an afterword but ven allowing for the benefit of hindsight when adding an afterword but ven allowing for the benefit of hindsight when adding and attributing thoughts to her younger self some of th I m not very sure how this book made me feel It s my SECOND EXPERIENCE WITH NOTHOMB AND I JUST FIND MYSELF experience with Nothomb and I just find myself to describe her personality
it s like 
s like m standing in front of a huge labyrinth and someone is saying Go get the cheese But for God sake I M NOT SEEING THE CHEESE I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE IT IS EVENNothomb s few pages are rich of ideas and sentiments the way you feel that you just finished a 500 pages book she doesn t xplain too much she doesn t repeat or rewrite any idea It s just her way take it or leave itSo if you are by any means searching for a peaceful reading this book doesn t suit youBelieve me you have to wear a long leg boot with a coat before The Art of Guweiz entering this Nothombian world because you are about to face some huge storms So get ready DI can t say that I did understand all what this book is talking about sometimes the ideas were really hardnough to let me repeat the paragraph once and twice I may change my review after rereading this book again or after being involved in Nothomb books but till now I can say that I m happy to have this book in my library This Belgian who writes in French was born in Japan and partly raised in China writes fantastical novellas usually about precocious children who Jinny the Changeling encounter self imposed orxternal hardships in the nasty old world I read this one for respite during The Tunnel but the choppy sentences and frustratingly twee intellectual humour made me less Hidden Gifts an abuse survivors triumph through cancer eager to pick it up Nothomb claims the story about a precocious seven year old member of Mao s army who falls in love with a steely Chinese Italian girl is completely true which seeing the character speaks at a level ofrudition most adults fail to achieve without speedball cocktails is a somewhat outrageous boast The novel coasts along on its impish humour and unusual approach to history but lacks the flair for tongue in cheek melodrama in books like The Character of Rain narrated by a three year old and The Book of Proper Names Also the cover gives me a headache.
