Tinkers by Paul Harding

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.
