Finished reading After Dachau. It's very interesting, having read Daniel Quinn's other works. Specifically Ishmael. One of the first allegories brought up in that book is expanded upon to form the basis of this one.

It's also interesting because it seems to exist on three levels.
  • surface level story
  • what Quinn's telling a new reader
  • what he's telling his long-time followers
I'm nearly positive those last two categories are separate. The whole thing's a little muddled, really, which is unusual for this author. But it's still an entertaining read, and well recommended. Just go through the other books first.

(I can't give you any more details than that. Nothing personal)
