The best novel I've read in more than a decade,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Independence Day (Kindle Edition)
An outstanding novel, most marvellously written. It describes the narcissistic failures of fatherhood (especially towards their sons) and how the promise of the young can be misunderstood and ruthlessly destroyed by the utter selfishness of their parents. It's a very remarkable work of art and why it should won two major prizes becomes obvious even before the first paragraph has been read. Richard Ford has written a classic in his own time. Very highly recommended.
