Nikolski - Nicolas Dickner Excellent. Loved it. A narrative that skitters around, touching down on explanations and descriptions, then takes flight again and moves on, without sentiment for the telling detail. Marvelous. Chose the book after it won the CBC radio program “Canada Reads”. This one must have deserved its win, just from sheer originality and freshness of voice.
