3 1/2 stars. Very atmospheric. Thought the non-plot-slice-of-life mosaic style suited the memoir-esque tone. Only thing that held me back from 4 was the ending with the squirm-inducing middle-aged bus driver scene and also the scene where the parents have sex in the bathroom while the three boys are in the tub, which the NYT called a "striking scene" and I call creepy. But beautiful writing style nicely narrated in the audio version.
