it was amazing
bookshelves: aww2019

Beautiful, sad. This resonated for me so much, conjuring memories of my Eastern European grandparents exiled from their countries after WW2. Their life-long inability to fit in, limbo, and restlessness. The disappointment and weariness of being alone in the world and the weight of carrying this. A weight that is passed down the generations. Their resilience, and their brokenness. The fractures and bonds in families. If my reaction to the book and this review is disjointed, it mirrors in some way the prose of Parrett's book. A collection of notes that when played together become a fugue.
