It was fascinating to witness Harry and his fellow "kalachakra" evolve as individuals over the course of multiple lifetimes. For some the accumulated weight becomes unbearable. Others see opportunities to exploit. All are deftly and convincingly drawn, each embodying the blessings and curses of their kind.
The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August is the work of an prodigiously talented writer.
