did not like it

Grimsley's first book, Winter Birds is one of my favorite books. It's a stunning piece of fiction. I also thought Dream Boy was impossible to put down. It falls apart at the end, maybe, but even then it's a great read. By comparison this book felt like a tepid regurgitation of his first works. It was bleak, and sad, and hopelessly derivative of his own genius.
