Euphoria - Lily King "He is wine and bread and deep in my stomach."

An intoxicating read, with a beautiful mastery of language and character development; the kind of book you find yourself reading aloud to others verbatim because paraphrasing it would not capture the nuance or emotional impact. The story unfolded like a dream and hurled toward an emotional conclusion that left me with thoughts about the nature of culture, our powers of observation, and the influence of temperament both on our relationships as well as the development of others. And the feelings definitely root themselves deep in your stomach.
