As the novel circles closer to the grand reveal promised by its title, Mathews toys with the reader’s ‘desire to resolve the irresolute, to conclude the incomplete, to have the crooked made straight.’ The result is an undeniably clever parting shot from one of contemporary literature’s most playfully challenging writers.
