Ben Richards - The Mermaid and the Drunks

I read this for a Reading Group. It was a Richard and Judy title and quite old now. Having just read Dan, I have to say what struck me with this novel was the quality of the writing. I think there will be much here to engage a Book Group.

This is essentially a history of Chile with the emphasis on modern Chile and what maybe has changed. I am sure this will cause a great deal of debate, as to how, why and what can be done.

The ending was somewhat unsatisaftory as in effect it just fizzled out, but then isn't that true to life, people come into our lives and some of them just fade away and are gone before we often realise it.........
