"The Lola Quartet" — Emily St. John Mandel

Alas, I've come to the end of this wonderful author's oeuvre.

This is the fifth of the author's five novels, saved until I couldn't stand it any longer.

I still haven't figured out exactly how she does what she does, which is move the narrative forward and backward in time without making it clear that that's what she's doing, creating a mild sense of disorientation in the reader that's very appealing.

Wait a sec — what's that music I'm hearing?
