Unlike most other Friedlander books, where you can open to almost any page and get the joke, this book tells more complicated stories--it rewards time spent following the characters--at one level, it seems to have the ambition of a massive Russian novel--but maybe that's the joke--we all live complicated lives--but few manage to record them so well as Friedlander.
The photos here are expressions of joy and pain and everyday life. Viewing them makes me feel like a family member (albeit a very distant one) looking through the family album.
