Fascinating, poetic book. It asks us to consider how arbitrary national boundaries are and how our lives would be different if we were forced to acknowledge this reality. There are moments that are deeply thoughtful and lyrical, and overall I found the writing style lovely and subtle. I listened to it on audiobook, and it is a shame they had the author read it himself. It is fine, but his voice lacks the range of a trained actor, and it can be a bit repetitive to listen to for long periods of time.
