Review: The Centaur in the Garden

User Review  - Alice - Goodreads

For some unknown reason, I read this book in German. It was one of my first stabs at magical realism, and I probably would have gotten more out of it if I'd read it in English. I enjoyed it enough to recommend it to my Dad. Never heard what he thought of it. Read full review
