Format: Hardcover
I picked this book up from a bargain bin somewhere, and tried several times, unsuccesfully to actually read the entire thing. I felt that the descriptions by the author were interesting and provided some good visualization, but had a very hard time discerning dream sequences, flashbacks, memories, current time, etc. The net effect is that I often found myself reading, not knowing what I was being told. Don't get me wrong, I love a book with lots of turns and perhaps convoluted plot lines, but this one went too far for me.

Format: Hardcover
Ferguson is a superb storyteller, and a magician with words. A coming of age story, which is uniquely idiosyncratic, replete with one of a kind fictional characters. A tale of a child and his schizophrenic mother, that reveals truths we all need to come to terms with.
