Port Mungo by Patrick McGrath
Port Mungo

zizzle, June 16, 2007

From the dismal fog of London, to the resplendent velocity of Manhattan, and on to the sultry haze of Caribbean Port Mungo, we are guided from one seductive locale to another. With a narrative full of sensory detail, Patrick McGrath draws the reader into an uninhibited world painted with art, sex, alcohol, and a mysterious death.
The ending leaves one contemplative and unsure - torn perhaps- but it?s up to the individual to decide whether or not the conclusion to this tumultuous novel is convincing. Overall, Port Mungo is a fast-paced and generally satisfying read.
