Inventive story of odyssey and love
23 March 2002 | by thezahirSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this highly inventive story of odyssey and love. The Devil goes to a psychiatrist and falls in love with her. The odyssey is mostly about convincing the psychiatrist that he is serious and not crazy. A sub-story about a legendary opera singer provides a philosophical background that reminded me of the bookishness of the writer L. Borges. It also sets up an unforgettable scene. Deadpan, foreboding, European pacing.
