Why not 5 stars? Same reason I gave for the 3 stars I gave "Decorations": The beginning of the book is better than the first novel, but still very confusing. In this case, I would have begun the story of Shelton by jumping into Minou's story in some manner. Minou is an important character, but does not enter until page 50 in the Avon paperback. This novel, like "Decorations" is in the first person (and some twists to third person); however, there could have been some structural play whereby Minou enters in a different voice. Might have grabbed more readers sooner.
So -- Mr. Brown, where are you with your fourth novel?
In spite of the painful circumstances of his childhood, and maybe because of them, LaFleur grows up to be a successful painter. Though some of his work is enigmatic and dark, he finds an audience as he matures. The story is written from the vantage point of the old man he's become.
It's been eight months since I read this book, and I still think about it. That's a book worth reading!
