Upon the death of his father, Oppen Porter finds himself uprooted from his childhood home where his innocence has been accepted. In a voice that resembles that of Forrest Gump, Oppen is narrating his story to his unborn son into a tape cassette, relating how he finds himself in Southern California in a life he has to navigate without much help from his aunt. The story is more about how the world looks to new eyes than anything else. His acceptance of 21st Century life refreshes it for a reader patient enough to accept the style and sometimes cliched handling of material. I liked, but didn't love, it.
