Review: The Spectre of Alexander Wolf

The Spectre of Alexander Wolf
The Spectre of Alexander Wolf by Gaito Gazdanov
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Liked the descriptions and scenes of 1920s (I think) Paris the most. These are narrated tersely, with just enough visual and aural detail. Thought the narrator’s inner ruminations seemed convoluted and tedious by comparison, with the diction overly formal.
