Review: The London Embassy (Spencer Monroe Savage)

User Review  - Anne - Goodreads

Theroux has been recommended to me for years. This book is a great snapshot of London in the 80's. The book is a series of short vignettes about the main character who goes unnamed until the very end. I found him a bit hard to connect with which is why I gave the book 3 stars. Read full review
