Book 20: The Girl Who Wasn't There by Ferdinand von Schirach


This wasn't really what I expected from the back, which makes it sound like a thriller; instead it's an odd but interesting portrait of an artist, with an unusual view of the world, art and truth, who happens at one point to be accused of a murder. I admit I was fairly sure what the outcome would be (more or less) and I was right, but that didn't change my enjoyment of this very readable and well-written short book. Hard to quantify, but worth a read.
