Rodney WelchThere's a lot of plot as Giardina scrapes away at the crust of these lives as they mature and wither over a span of some 40 years, but this is a novel that really lives and breathes below the surface. Giardina is an artist who delicately but firmly presses every moment for its truth and passes up every chance for easy sentimentality. There isn't a false note in this vividly melancholy book.
