Marilyn StasioCook writes in a multiplicity of voices and time frames, and with a profusion of literary references that in another context might seem showy. But from the perspective of a learned narrator who has lived long enough to rue the day he tried to play God, the convolutions of both plot and thought—so tortured and twisted and ultimately so futile—are entirely in character. That's the romantic curse of living in a Cook novel, breathing in the regional melancholy and brooding on distant fathers and lost sons.
