Europe Central

A generation before, the Iron Chancellor had observed: I’ve always found the word Europe on the lips of those statesmen who want something from a foreign power which they would never venture to ask for in their own name.

That is from William Vollman’s Europe Central, which just won the National Book Award for Non-Fiction [correction: Fiction].  The Amazon reviews make it sound daunting, but so far (p.32) it is great fun.  If you’re reading it, add your opinion in the comments.
