A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra
Paperback: Feb 2014. 416 pages. Novel. Published by Hogarth Books
Anthony Marra's forte may very well be his ability to create characters his readers really come to care about. Every one of them, from the lowliest guard up, is drawn with amazing depth, with the author sometimes conveying a character's whole history in just a few sentences. He even leads his readers to understand and sympathize with the book's most unsavory character, something that is extraordinarily difficult to do.
