This book celebrates life by telling George Crosby’s tale from his deathbed. The parallels and contrasts with his father’s life also weave in. At the same time, a love affair with language is going on. This novel is utterly beautiful. It reminds you that an “everyman’s” life has far-reaching tentacles and that the most simple things can be vast in their power.
