Read in July, 2009

I wasn't so sure about this one until I finished it. It was kind of crazy throughout...jumped back and forth between the present and the past of the main character Sylvia and her family. At first I wasn't even sure if it was taking place in this time frame...
I liked the writing style and the character development. She writes with a sharp and witty style. I can see why she is a Professor of writing at Columbia.
If I think about it I would even say this would be a good book to discuss...lots to talk about: friendship, marriage, war, love , relationships, sex, grief, mental illness, etc.
I recommend it.
