I just flipped through it again trying to remember something, anything about it, held the hardcover book in my hands, read the inside cover, looked at the photo of the author, and read the recommendation by Gwyneth Paltrow on the back. Yeah, like I said read this few years ago without retaining anything.
This is about a guy who has had a bunch of bad relationships, not just with the women in his love life, but with his dad and the people around him in general. He has an affair with an older woman, and hunts down myths of his neighbourhood.
The book is written like a bad paced script for a tv show. Short pages, or are they long paragraphs? with alot of point form speech.
I just could not get into this story the first time around, trying to re-read it is not going to happen.
