"The Lazarus Rumba," by Ernesto Mestre. Picador. 486 pages. $27.50.Ernesto Mestre's first novel, "The Lazarus Rumba," is a challenging -- no, exhausting -- book that nearly drove me mad with the demands it made, but once I understood that it wasn't a book I could read in 10- or 15-minute blocks, and once I understood that it wasn't a book to feed my bottomless appetite for bemused riffs on contemporary U.S. pop culture, and once I understood that it wasn't a book structured in generic deference to the narrative default of movies and TV shows, I found myself reading with the kind of deliberation and concentration I hadn't needed since I read Proust's "In Search of Lost Time."
