Read in April, 2011

Absolutely beautiful. Very good drama which also managed to contain the lyrical. Simple and yet also full of very delicate yet occasionally brutal memories, which float through the consciousness of all three members of the suffering family. I particularly liked the description of the old father bathing his baby daughter, with her "knuckles smaller than baby snails".
