I finished The Vegetarian and then forgot to post about it. I liked it. I did wonder briefly in the middle whether it would be getting so much attention if it was set in the West, i.e. if it wasn't so easy to project Otherness onto the characters, to ascribe some of their behaviors and concerns to another culture. Or if it would then be perceived as too over-the-top, a burlesque grotesquerie, instead of a prizewinning literary novel. But I liked it because of its feminist existentialism.

Now I am reading Matt Ruff's Lovecraft Country.
