    One of the best books I ve ever read A heart wrenching, beautifully sensitive portrayal of loss and betrayal.

    Amusing, smart, well developed characters in Oswald and Gabriel Look forward to reading some of his other stuff.

    Beautifully written but painful to read Family and friendship at both it s worst and it s best.

    Great Book, read many years ago and still keep it Quite the character study and examination of family interaction.
