Another book that makes my "Top 10 for 2013." Wow, this author can write and she writes beautifully! I believe this is a debut novel for her. I didn't like the ending, however, as it was wrapped up neatly like I would have liked. I guess it ended like it should have, not how I hoped it would, and there were some unanswered questions for me. I highly recommend this book. ( )

Gaige creates a fascinating and complex character in Erik, as he moves from the eccentric and slightly irresponsible father to a desperate man at the end of his rope. While the novel’s format occasionally lends itself to overly dramatic prose, this does not take away from its warmth and expert exploration of the immigrant experience, alienation, and the unbreakable bond between parent and child.
