William Kotzwinkle’s Fata Morgana is one of the best books of the Twentieth Century. I have read it more than a score of times, each reading revealing some little nugget I somehow hadn’t noticed before. It is enchanting, captivating, exciting and erotic, and the ending, although familiar, always comes as a surprise. I have the privilege of owning a signed first edition, and I wouldn’t part with it for all the tea in China.
Like you, Simon, I read and re-read this delightful book often and, like you, continue to find new delights each time. I quite agree it is one of the finest novels of the twentieth century.
