An engaging read
on 16 June 2013
I read a recommendation by Irvine Welsh on Twitter for this book and thought I'd give it a go. The story looks at the estranged relationships of brothers, father and sons and husbands and wives. I think the prose style of the writing keeps you engaged from the start as we follow the lives of two brothers that set off on an American road trip to find their father who abandoned them when they were very young.
Culture, religion and family routinely come under the spotlight during this journey and we how different the lives of the brothers have become since their estrangement from each other, with one in the US and the other in the UK. Worth a read.
