really liked it

Emancipation opens with the story of a tragic event. The author cleverly draws the dark thread of this tragedy through the lives of the all characters in the story collection. Most effected was Gratey who carried his guilt through his teens, his time in Vietnam , into his marriage and finally to a spot in Kauffmann's doorway where he found that he and his guilt could live in peace. Along that journey the author introduces us to the characters who touched Gratey's life and whose lives in turn were effected by the tragedy that shaped Gratey . All the stories are beautifully written and the characters keenly observed. I thoroughly enjoyed Emancipation and recommend it.
