LOVERS AT THE CHAMELEON CLUB by Francine Prose Is a bit difficult to follow.  Many voices tell the story. Lou is a muscular woman who is a very good athlete.  She is an Olympic track star, undercover agent, traitor, and cross dresser.  There are many accurate historical facts but too many voices.  At one point it is the writer, the girlfriend, and the photographer but all in first person.  I had to keep looking back or reminding myself who was speaking and then I would lose the thread of the story. I like learning the facts, and about the people but want to enjoy a book not struggle to keep it reading smoothly.
