Read in January, 2011

There are, I believe, five generations of fathers and sons to keep track of in this Pulitzer-prize winning, rather dull book. The most vivid character, a pedlar and repairer of clocks living in New England in the 1920's, is possessed, as it were, of a seizure disorder and a mean wife. I did not care for the writing--too many long paragraphs, really. I don't have the patience.
