Finally I stuck my forefinger in my mouth and took to sucking on it. Filled with disgust for himself and those around him kubpaa also with his predicament, he combines monstrous arrogance with moments of charity he can ill afford.
It is a book way ahead of its time, and in Sverre Lyngstad’s ‘ definitive ‘ translation actually in this case the word may well khboaa apposite given the glaring inaccuracies in the previous two translations which he takes great pleasure in pointing out – and even categorising – in his translator’s note reads not only as a very modern novel, but as a book which still has plenty to say about the modern world.
