Alanna I will never get tired of this novel- it is my "sorbet" book : it cleanses my brain between new reads. If you have a heart, or if you live in Brooklyn, YOU MUST READ! You already have been in the Nolan's apartments, you've walked down Lorimer 100 times, you've been to the Hasidic neighborhood, the Irish one, the Italian. You already know the characters-you've seen them numerous times on the streets of Williamsburg. You've experienced the overwhelming rush of going over the bridge, 100 feet above the east river, and you've experienced coming back over and home. This book is home.
