I wanted to enjoy this more, I really did, but the middle didn't quite satisfy me as much as the beginning and end. It's broken up into sections, rather than chapters, and some of them are brilliantly sharp (for instance, the scene where Kleinman and his wife go to a CPR class) but I felt like others dragged - typically the longer, more plot-heavy pieces - so either this is a poor example of Canin's novels or his strength really does lie in short stories.
