A Gesture Life: A Novel by Chang-rae Lee

I don’t think this book is worth its hype, yet it is worthwhile, although slow-going. The narrator is unreliable and frustrating. He makes himself unapproachable and seemingly boring, but that technique inevitably proves to be purposeful. You have to choose what maybe true. A lot of great writing about war prisoners and identity and life’s bigger questions.
