It took me a lot longer than a week to read this and even after getting to the end, all I can get is only boy from a large family leaves Carolina to go to university in New York. We find his late father lead a double family life and leaves a mistress and another son but other than that, not much else.
I loved the last, most recent book I ready by Anne Tyler which I picked up completely by chance. So I thought I would like this, not realising it was from 1964. Not that this should be significant but I just couldn’t get into it.
I cannot mark down a book by a talented author, it just didn’t do anything for me.
