At first it took me a few pages to get into this book, possibly because the first person narrator moves from a character to another, creating a slight initial disorientation. Then, bit by bit, I just got completely absorbed, to the point that I devoured the book. Cunningham has a very gentle touch, his narrative is always very poetic and completely enjoyable. Moving through the lives of Bobby and Jonathan, friends since high school, the novel deals with what, after all, is one of everybody's major concern: finding a "place", a proper and definitive one, in this world. Despite being a not very original theme, Cunningham approaches it in a very singular way, and from a multiple point of view, giving it depth and complexity. The result is a novel I truly enjoyed and strongly recommend.
