Allmänna fakta



Fantastic book. Truly a page-turner. It sucked me in from chapter one and still hasn't let go. After I finished it, I found myself wondering where the characters are now - sure sign of an engrossing read.

The American dream gone wrong us how I describe this novel. It goes wrong for an Iranian family who had to leave Iran without their wealth and are trying to keep up appearances as Col. Behrani works collecting garbage on side of the hwy and changes into a suit before going home so people won’t know what he does Kathy Nicole is a recovering addict who is trying to get her life back together and the only thing of value she has is the house her father left her. But things go terribly wrong for both these people all entered around her house and a clerical error and all hell breaks loose.
Thus was a good read that kept me turning the pages. The only thing that bothered me was the detailed descriptions of people’s bad breath and the deputy sheriff’s crooked moustache .

Highly recommended. A memoir by Andre Dubus' son, who is also an acclaimed writer, of growing up poor, in violent, working-class towns in Massachusetts and how he learned how to fight and how not to fight. In no way smarmy.
