The Lizard Cage: A Novel

The Lizard Cage - Karen Connelly This promises to be an amazing book if you are one of those lucky readers who doesn't mind present tense writing. I, alas, am not. I tried hard with this one because I could tell it was worth reading, but the present tense narration was just too much of a struggle. Few authors who write in the present tense are actually skillful enough to be doing so. Others should stick to the good old-fashioned past tense.
