Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0944072615, Hardcover)

A weekend-in-the-country plot along the lines of The Cherry Orchard and The Big Chill gives this short novel its theatrical structure, and Pall's crackling wit and insightful prose give it its lively, moving voice. The Ginzburgs are your average smart, mostly successful, less than happy New York Jewish family with an acceptable level of dysfunction and a dying father who once disappeared with a suicidal poet. Gathered at Meyer Ginzburg's deathbed, the Ginzburg siblings talk, argue, reminisce, and speculate on the life their father lived apart from them, and reconstruct something like a unified family again.
