Wonderful. Jess Walter is one of the finest writers working today and this, his second novel of something like five, is something special. The story has remarkably fleshed out characters (even ones that only put in an appearance or two) and a dark story of the consistency and solidity of a persons identity from childhood through adulthood. Nothing in this story feels phoned in or artificial, the dialogue, the build up, the resolution and idea and possibility of redemption, all done meticulously and with the kind of skill that can and really only should be expected by walter. Read it. NOW.
