I finished this book a week ago It's stayed with me heavy and important and pressed upon me like a dream I can't shake because of its subconscious importance And much like life in real time I can't uite yet understand yet Other reviews have done an apt job in summarizing its premise a boy is now an orphan and this unwanted reality ripples a tragic emotional explosion on the boy's extended family What I want to focus on is Rossi's superb style and craft The narration told in stream of consciousness from four different points of view not only echoes but bring forth the masters of craft illustrating how to expertly tell a messy trail of thought in deliberate calculation Somewhere Joyce and Faulkner and Salinger are nodding and thinking yes this is how it is done Rossi grants us access to feel the pain and turmoil of an unknowingly selfish man discovering that he is not selfish at all a heartbroken mom that struggles to overcome her guilt from personal choices so she can hopefully and optimistically dive into her own grief at the loss of her son another mother so bent on false pride redemption due to past motherly moments that she unwittingly can't accept that her future choices are superficially solipsistic and then the most heartbreaking of all a father and husband understanding his life in the moment of his death Oh how I cried with this one The last chapter reads like a Buddhist asking for forgiveness in the face of unwanted self actualization terrified that that the existentialists were right yet strong enough to transcend this bleakness to find meaning in his existence before he doesn't have one The last three pages narrate as a manic expression of human devotion This is the closest I've ever come to reading the definition of love According to Rossi to love means to continue breathing in the face of tragedy as we imbibe our foolishness and fear and awe and gratitude of this world This is what fills our lungs and this is what dares us to find fault in how we live which is the only way to understand why we live Hopefully then we can understand that the only reason we live in spite of life's nonsense is to love Holy goodness this was a great book Read it
