Woke up thinking through the puzzle of the Ferris book. What’s wrong with it?Can’t quite put my finger on it but there’s something that annoys in this ‘trying too hard to be literary novel’. I want to follow the mysterious man to a conclusion; I want to know about the court case & whether Tim is as good as he thinks or whether the whole thing is a delusion – which would point to his illness being delusional. Not sure. Frustrated. Started review of The Legend of Sander Grant (Telegram) as a distraction.
