really liked it

I felt different ways about this book at different times along the narrative. My favorite part was the story line about Jochaved and Schmerle; I looked forward to it during the Bernie interludes, and never really stopped missing it once the story moved on beyond their time. The writing is funny and understated in all the right places. As a fellow Memphian, I felt a little insulted by the repeated references to lilacs, which do not grow here, and the idea that in 2002 we would have had a racist mayor grumbling about improper mixing. We elected our first black mayor in 1991! I also still am not sure how I feel about the ending. Overall, though, it was an enjoyable read.

Ashley Steve is one of my favorite people. I feel really fortunate to know about his work since it seems not enough people do.
