The Snow Queen by Michael Cunningham

This novel is about unambitious Barrett who can’t find love and sees a vision in the park one night. He lives with his older brother, Tyler, a tired musician who is hitting a wall whenever he tries writing a wedding song for his dying girlfriend, Beth. The three of them live together in Brooklyn. There’s little plot and lots of meandering days in this novel. It’s lack lustre except for Cunningham’s beautiful writing. But even that didn’t redeem this novel for me.
