Shibumi, Trevanian – 1979

I was looking for classic can’t-put-’em-down stuff that I hadn’t read yet, and found this on some list of “best thrillers.” I did enjoy it quite a bit, but man is it weird. Trevanian was apparently quite a character and it’s reflected in his highly-opinionated asides which trash just about everyone (see this list). Having read this months ago and just posting now, I went Googling for some of the more outrageous quotes, and found both the list above and this excellent review.
