sad. depressing. Still worth reading. I had read all of her other books by the time I got to this one- and it makes me wonder if Rita Ciresi - is not just a little "disturbed". all of her books have characters that have real difficulty expressing emotions- and being able to give or receive love.
There is something very cold about this main character. In other ways, these books remind me of the novels Amy Tan writes, and the disconnect between immigrant parents and their American born children.
