This is the third book I have read by this author (after 'This is Where I Leave You' and 'Everything Changes') and I have to say, I really like his style. Note of caution, if you are not all that down with gratuitous sex, then this is probably someone to avoid, because while it is not entirely out of the realm of necessary to tell the story, it is kind of like watching Kevin Spacey masturbate in the shower in 'American Beauty'--you could probably have gotten the just of it without it being quite so clear on the details--there are a fair amount of details,a nd there are alot of people not quite behaving themselves, and his characters get caught in flagrato more commonly than is the norm. That said, the story flows very well, and could not easily put the story down--I read two of his books this week, both of them in about a day, and I would get the two I haven't read (the library did not have them in). Great story teller.
