A tale of self actualization,
This review is from: The Beautiful Miscellaneous: A Novel (Hardcover)
A coming of age story about a young boy crushed under the seemingly endless expectations of his genius father. Nathan, the protagonist, spins a dramatic tale that never feels like it has reached a lull, a mean feat for this type of drama.
The central plot seems to consist in whether Nathan can ever come to understand that shadowy figure of his father, and in doing so, whether he can come to realize his own self and potential.
Written with lucid prose and a clear headed plot, this is a must read.
