A story about loss. I enjoyed the writing, though the narration seems distant from the characters. July, an orphaned runaway at 12, is relatively unscathed by his deep solitude and poverty. Is this likely?
I had the sense that the book was overly workshopped, or heavily edited. I'm curious to read the next book by this author, written 25 years later.
