really liked it
Read in February, 2012

The author captures a time in life as well as a time period so well in this short, pithy novel. This elegiac novel is about loss: lost loves, lost youth, death. The dark theme is very gently expressed. While this is not my favorite by this author, I love McDermott's writing style. Recommend.
