What a bunch of looney characters! Egan's book is a compilation fo interwoven stories of unusual characters of various ages, backgrounds, and quirks. The writing was beautiful; in fact, I don't think I've ever seen the work excematous before the book and the fact that the word appeared more than once was really cool! I can see why the book received such honors. I really wish I could read it again for the first time.
