really liked it
Read in March, 2009

My first book by Hijuelos, the Cuban-American author, and I found it to be a beautiful meditation on family, on being second generation, on ghosts of home and of beloved parents. The novel contains complex portraits of the central characters' parents, who suffered and who caused each other and their children to suffer, but who also loved. I look forward to reading more of Hijuelos's work.
