Not a great novel by any stretch, but one chapter stands out. It is written in the voice of an elementary-aged kid -- the chapter is an essay he wrote for school about his father; his teacher happens to be his mother. Wolff manages the voice flawlessly while guiding the reader through the pitfalls of pre-adolescence and a family on the verge of collapse. A virtuoso performance!
