A great read. Heartbreaking and funny all at once.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Everything You Know (Paperback)
As a reader of Heller's columns for years I was quite surprised to find this wasn't another book in the "I'm a single twentysomething girl in the big city" genre. Rather, it's a thoughtful study of a man at mid life, struggling to come to terms with the death of one grown daughter and theestrangement of another. Heller writes beautifully, putting one in mind of Updike or Phillip Roth. And did I mention it's funny, funny, funny? Full marks for this one.
