Fear and Trembling - Amelie Nothomb


I read this in two hours as an antidote to Dan Rhodes' pessimism. This, too, is a slightly surreal tale of betrayal and revenge, but told with a lighter touch and a sense of hope. It's also a story of racism and ignorance - from all sides - a fable of cultural misunderstanding. So not entirely a good choice to dilute the cynicism.
