August Books 14) Last Call, by Tim Powers

I didn't really get in with this, and almost gave up after the first third: most of the characters too unpleasant and unengaging, too many cultural references that simply sailed past me. I stuck with it in the end, and appreciated as ever Powers' dense description and evocative spookiness, but didn't really feel I grasped what it had all been about or why it mattered at the end.

Or the C11/C12 Jersey poet Wace or the history of Las Vegas, which were my routes into it.

So much wrapped up in one author's works!
