3.5 stars.

Attenberg's novel was painful to read. I find her to be a good writer and her characters always seem real, albeit so different from me that it's a bit hard for me to connect with them. I still find myself enjoying her writing, her characters and her stories because they feel honest and real. I might not connect with the characters' choices or actions but I connect with their pain and suffering and frustrations etc because I can almost acutely feel it come off the page. This novel was no different. At its center the toxic Victor and the pain that toxicity caused to everything and everyone around it. How we carry our scars around with us for a long time and how this type of damage can pass from generation to generation. It's painful and observant and sad and anger-inducing. Which is why it feels so real.
