This is rather heavy going, but worth it. Most people would rather not think about death and the afterlife, but Miskimon has given the matter more than a little thought. There's a strange dichotomy between the surface story of a newspaperman struggling to get his life in order and the under-story that death is there to gobble up everything no matter what we do. It left me feeling a little disconcerted. But I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to delve into this topic. It will challenge your comfort zone!Was this review helpful?

I read this in two sittings. It's the engaging story of a journalist who fights against alcoholism and the grief that follows the shattering loss of his daughter. Besides investigating the story of a man in turmoil, it gives the reader a good look at the ins and outs of producing a weekly newspaper in a small city where the great and near great engage in political wheeling and dealing (California's Carmel-by-the-Sea). We follow the inner and outer life of newspaperman Peter Danforth from his struggles in California to a surprising climax in the Pacific Northwest.Was this review helpful?
