Intelligent exciting new fiction
This smart debut novel digs deep inside a multi-generational family dealing with a distant tragedy that has shaped many lives. One of the best novels I read this year, far better than the badly overrated Goldfinch. What it is ultimately matters more than who you are. This work shines on its own creative merits.
