This is a 10 star book!
I judge a book by its ability to stay with me beyond the last page. I read this book several weeks ago and still ruminate. Lily King ably explores the relationship between a father and daughter during the 70's. Complicating the relationship is the father's ongoing battle with alcoholism. King's description of life with the unpredictable and bewildering behaviors of an alcoholic are spot on. This book is one of the better novels I have read this year. Highly recommended.
