Review (not rated)
This book was selected for discussion by the book group to which I belong. It is beautifully and cleverly written. I have to say, however, and I am speaking for myself alone, that the book comes together for me since we read Mrs. Dalloway as last month's selection. I would recommend that if it has been a while since you read Mrs.D, or if you have never read Virginia Woolf's very fine novel, you might want to give some consideration to reading it as a companion piece. But the bottom line is Mr. Cunningham has done a fine job of bringing all of these complex and fascinating characters together. A source of great pleasure; I enjoyed it immensely.
