    I loved this book Leavitt reminds me of Charles Baxter and Scott Spenser or great female writers like Ann Beatie or Julia Glass or Meg Wolitzer It's a story of human relationships which I think is often considered a woman's topic but Leavitt adds his own edge homosexuality death affairs turkey baster babies Beautiful writing I'm looking forward to finding other books by this author

    A family chronicle and a portrait of a matriarch who at the beginning of the book has been diagnosed with cancer Leavitts characters are deftly drawn grounded in history and alive too Some parts lagged around the 34 mark but by the end of the book the separate threads needled together and I could see what he was doing 45 stars
