Even though the two main characters are endearing and grow stronger and richer as the book progresses, at the end of the day I was a bit disappointed with the disjunct tone and the general quality of the writing. This is coming from a huge, rabid fan of "Last Night I Sang to the Monster." The beauty and subtlety of that book is only caught in glimpses here. The book does find its footing and confidence as it goes on, but overall it seems like a step back in sophistication of style and tone from Saenz's best work.
