A cleaning woman
This novel offers the unique perspective of a heartbroken man desperately infatuated with a woman he has just met. We hear his wistful appreciation of her every tuft of hair and catch each dust mote that hovers over them. Meanwhile, the narrator's possessive gaze blinds his ability to see himself at all. His dryness teases the reader into believing in his modesty, while we see him hilariously exposed when the story unravels around him.
