Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679772715, Paperback)Mona Simpson's first two novels, Anywhere but Here and The Lost Father, won her literary renown and a wide following. Now, in her third novel, the narrator Ann Atassi has been replaced by a third-person narrator recounting the adventures of young Jane di Natali, but the theme remains the same: the search for, and the attempt to understand, the absent father. This time the father is a millionaire biotechnology magnate named Tom Owens--loosely based, perhaps, on Steven Jobs, Mona Simpson's half-brother and the founder of Apple Computers. Fans of Simpson's previous novels will not be disappointed by this excursion into the cracked world of family relations.
