Some really good insight here. I can't wait to get as far as you are. I'm also mightily impressed with the keeper's stalwart devotion to antiquities and the meaning those pieces can bring when surrounded by people whose only passion seems to stem from party politics and pedantic inter-office affairs. That librarian is quite a bitch. And then you read that they just took her husband away (!) I thought this book would be an interesting read, but I'm finding with each successive page an ever-growing attachment to this town in Kazakstan that I've never heard of and its citizens. Paranoia rarely ever read so real.
I'm truly saddened to hear about you dad. It doesn't just suck. Its some cruel injustice nature plays on us humans who have far less control than we care to admit. Your dad deserves far better. And it's odd you say that reading "Keeper" has helped. Yesterday I finished typing (and editing) the scenes to my third character and it put me in a funk. There are many allusions to passed parents in those six scenes and it just made me really miss my dad's company. He was honestly a good friend to me. But when I picked up "Keeper" again, the pervasive humor in the face of such unfairness and petty meanness set me on pretty cozy grass. I appreciate the time I was able to spend with my dad.
Maybe the slights received to your family and mine over our fathers has a correlation to some far-flung corner of the world that we'll never see; maybe there are two other persons experiencing a sudden cessation of horror and surprised by a gift of unexpected peace. Karma or wish-fulfillment? I'd rather scrape and fight to safeguard the meanings in antiquities than give in to the pressure and hate and smash all the treasures I've built up inside over the years. Thick skin can still be sensitive.
Keep your head up, brother.
I just read a great line on page 106:"Who's talking about clean hands?" I shouted. "I wouldn't trust you to handle a kitten, let alone people!"

Probably won't have many chances to read this weekend due to a bit of the ol' drinky-drinky.

Hairless BJays are even better.
