Looking forward to the book club discussion on this one. I enjoyed the book, and some sections much more than others. I'm not sure I get why this was a Pen/Faulkner finalist -- I think I'm missing something here. Or maybe I wasn't looking hard enough when reading.

I read Look at Me years ago and was much more impressed by the book than I expected to be. So I know that Egan has it; somehow I just think I missed it on this one. Maybe it's not meant to be read on a gorgeous Mother's Day for hours on end in a hammock.
