really liked it
bookshelves: books-by-people-i-know, novels-after-1980, chicago
Read in August, 2009

A very tender, moving portrayal of a family dealing with the tragic loss of a child. The final chapter is a real gut smasher/tear jerker, but it's so good and touching. This is the second book in a row I've read by a Chicago writer that featured a dynamite final chapter/story. From this I take: Chicagoans know how to end things. Does that mean something/anything? It sounds good...
