Helpful Score: 3


This book is a gentle meditation on a group of people and how their lives interact. The book is about 4 working-class men on their way to scatter one of their friend's ashes at sea. We learn about their pasts together, the ways they impacted one another's lives, their thoughts and feelings about life and death and love and family. It's set in Britain, and the language is of working-class British whose slang doesn't hide their very real emotions and struggles. I thought this book was wonderful, and I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.
