The Imposter

Quickie Recap: Adam is a middle-aged dude barely getting by in South Africa when he decides to move to the country and write poetry. Things don't go particularly well until he reconnects with someone from his past who serves as inspiration while entangling him in complications.
Quickie Review: This book definitely has its moments. There's a sinister quality that really succeeds, that really has you waiting for the other shoe to drop. And then there's this backdrop of racial tension, definitions of friendship and betrayal, and a sense of secrecy that pervades the story. All these little pieces are great, but somehow I felt they missed the mark as a whole.
Quickie Recommendation: Good, but not great.
