Shelves: This is a maddening book. Once, a reporter asked Bob Dylan what one of his songs was about. Dylan replied that it was about 7 minutes. Gamboa had me a good deal of the time. The set up was interesting - an invitation to a conference of biographers extended to a writer who was not a biographer, and who had not written anything in two years, but as all travel and accommodations were included, This is a maddening book.
So, off we go to Jerusalem in a state of war, but not before we get the story of a Christ figure of the streets who builds a multi-million dollar mission from scratch, serving the poorest of the poor.
The saving grace is that we also get stories from three other guests of honor. The stories, and especially the first of the three are masterpieces of short fiction, and the first of the three is worth the price of admission. As ambivalent as I feel about the book as a whole, that story is a hum-dinger.
But then the whole enterprise goes helter-skelter and the book falls off its hinge with a suicide, amateur detective work, any number of blow jobs, pages of incomprehensible philosophical babble while the hotel the King David btw is being bombed to rubble, and a denouement that makes no sense at all.
And why all this is a city of the dead is not clear to me at all. Why three stars? See what I mean? About pages.
