The Sound of Things Falling: A Novel

The Sound of Things Falling - Juan Gabriel Vásquez, Anne McLean From the chance encounter with a fellow billiard player to the possession of a tape (remember that, kids?) which turns out to be the recording of a black box, Juan Gabriel Vasquez weaves a tale of 60s innocence and the loss of it. I haven't been so affected by a novel in a long long while and I highly recommend this novel to anyone who wants to be surprised again by the power of story-telling.
