I liked quite a bit of this book, so 2 stars is perhaps a bit harsh. If it had been a novel about Philby & Frank, the "Crème de menthe" boys, I would have been very happy. However, the short account of their lives was interspersed with surreal digressions into various other "head games". These diversions were on the whole interesting, but I found them a bit depressing - which was not really what I signed up for.
The narration by Francis Greenslade (who is almost every Australian TV production) was excellent, and I am still prepared to give Nick Earls another go, but next time I will look for a novel.
