Zyzak, The Ballad of Barnabas Pierkiel

This was a tricky review to write, because the book was a sort that doesn’t appeal to me personally but is clearly a good book of its sort (I asked myself:  Would my husband like this?  And the answer was a resounding yes, and sure enough, his reading was a resounding pleasure.).  Zyzak, Ballad of Barnabas PierkielWhat’s remarkable is how very funny it is, and how much of that humor is invested in the language, which the young writer, a Pole, has only recently acquired.
