I'm pleased to report that notwithstanding my compulsion to complete things I've begun, and the fine writing of the loving nephew who profiles his aunt and uncle in the book, I returned it to the bookshelf about a quarter of the way through. I don't know how it happened that I grabbed this book right after finishing Angle of Repose, which is another painstaking retrospective parsing of a relationship that spanned decades. While Angle of Repose posed a challenge to my stick-to-it-iveness, I did complete it, and was glad when it finally "came together" a bit at the end, that I did. But the slog predisposed me to cut my losses early with this one. Sorry, Vik.
