    While I appreciated this novel s ambition and stylistic difficulty the non linear telling, the slipping identities, the political plot, the elision of place names and the setting in an unnamed Latin American ish island nation I can t say I actually liked the book I actually don t understand what it was about, which is to say it was about many things but I have trouble integrating

    2.5, rounded up.For much of Novey s sopho novel, I was intrigued and reading quickly to find out how all the myriad and provocative plot threads would resolve themselves, interweave and form a cohesive whole Unfortunately, the novel just ENDS with no resolution and without anything making much sense Things which SEEMED to be important in the beginning the sweater, the death of Maria P just f

    Let me begin with my ending Idra Novey s Those Who Knew is beautiful, classically shaped, compulsively readable, an all too relevant exploration of the moral and ethical conundrums of our troubled times, as lavishly wrought as poetry, rendered in sensational, moving prose, a page turner work of art, layered, like prescient pentimento Get your hands on a copy of Those Who Knew as soon as you can, move it to the top of you
