I just finished listening to Okay for Now and I don't know what I expected, but it was in the unexpectedness of this novel that I found satisfaction. The bird- Audubon thing was a little strange but it was the glue of the story and I can understand that. I found it a little unrealistic to have the father suddenly become human in the end, and the boss being such a nice guy, but I also got a feeling for how a wounded Vietnam veteran might have felt coming home. I loved the library reference/connection, but as a librarian myself, didn't appreciate the type-casting of the evil librarian. Some of us are actually quite human- thank you!
