    A page turner with heart

    This portrayal of life in Inwood (the old neighborhood at Manhattan's northernmost tip) is eerily perceptive. Michaud has captured the feel and tone of an immigrant Hispanic community from the point of view of the married-into-the-culture white spouse. It's vibrant and it's pitch-perfect. He's caught the voices, the moods, the sights, sounds and smells and yes, the soap-operatic nonstop drama. The book is also a small study of a type of maleness that is gentle and open-hearted and strong. That's a rarity in our literary output these days. A first novel with a great deal of charm, "When Tito Loved Clara" is a page turner that will keep you reading long past bedtime. We definitely look forward to more from this author. He's finding his stride--particular and unique. One gets the sense that the next book will be even better.
