At times funny, sad, political, introspective and insightful. A cast of demon characters became like family.

Bird and Mimi have been travelling the world tracing the mystery of Uncle Leroy and Mimi's family's lost bundle.

The complicated past of Bird and Mimi is revealed through their travels both current and past. I really enjoyed this method of storytelling, even though sometimes it wasn't always clear whether or not we were still in Prague. The characters are intriguing people (even if I did find Mimi extremely infuriating in her patronizing ways,) and the novel really serves as a a character study of their relationship. Despite the initial overtones of a humorous vacation tale, there are serious elements of classism, racism, ageing and the consumerist world that we live in.

If you like travelling, be warned that this novel will make you want to travel- an unfortunate impossibility during current times. Nevertheless, Prague and its many delights have been added to my bucket list of travel destinations!

I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoyed: Transcendent Kingdom, Small Game Hunting at the Local Coward Gun Club and Split Tooth. 4/5 stars for me on this one.

Note the breakfast time discussion of projection on Oz's globe is nonsensical: two dimensional maps are necessarily distorted; but three dimensional globes are practically distortion free.
