And not everything as in throw enough spaghetti against a wall and some is bound to stick. This memoir is about a man’s life after returning from war and how his experiences ripple through each moment and all concerned. It is enlightening, up-lifting, spooky, funny and sad. Never in that order and all the time.
I loved the book for its details and its completeness, but I love a lot of books that I never bother to write about. This one is special. I like literature that focuses a spotlight on people, places and troubles. This book does the opposite. It shines a huge arc lamp on entire life, glaring, unfocused and subsequently quite illuminating.
