"To see the world more clearly..."
on May 5, 2011
I borrowed this book from my library and didn't want to give it back. It's a crime novel, but eventually I found I was reading not only a compelling, beautifully written mystery, but also a meditation on our various responses to the calamities, insults, and losses life hurls at us. The characters make their choices; the consequences are poignant and convincing. Cohen slipped some diamonds of wisdom into the pages of this book. If you're open to them, you may never be the same after reading it. That's why I had to buy this book for myself before I could part with the library copy.
