T Experience — had written a young-adult novel. While some of the customs and details are charmingly dated, the themes of self-discovery and heartbreak are timeless and, I daresay, universal. I did not fully understand why until, at a subsequent meeting, Carson told me that there was one symptom by which he could infallibly recognize a guest who was on the brink of collapse, whether from fear, stimulants, or physical exhaustion.

    A waiter brings him a soft drink. The first time I read this novel, I think I barely slept, because I absolutely couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. Bee Season by Myla Goldberg.

Instead he posits that he -- Wolf Haas -- has written a novel based on Kowalski's story and called Das Wetter vor 15 Jahren, and with the yellow air-mattress on the cover But the Basra I saw was so exhausted and polluted.
