    In December 1953, Anthony Amedeo's world is nested in his Bronx neighborhood, his parent's Studebaker, the Paradise Theater, Yankee Stadium, and in his imagination, where he longs for a stencil kit to decorate the windows like all the other kids on his street. Instead, he gets a very different present: his uncle Malcolm's family.

    "Just lovely"
    Overall

    An extraordinary way of telling this story, with multiple characters telling their story, but in sequence--the story moves along with each new narrator. Ursula Hegi has a lovely ear for the language. I'm confused by the reviewer who had a problem with the "narrator's sardonic tone" since there are three narrators and they are all award-winning actors; I found them captivating.

    Christine says: "Similar style to Jane Eyre"
    "Just lovely"
    Overall

    I'm such a sucker for a well-written book. I just loved the language--and the reader read it so lovingly. Each character drew me or repelled me, according to the author's wont I'm sure. The sword display scene was breathtaking. I mean, I know it's from another time entirely--before electricity, and I suppose it's romance might make it easy to dismiss, but if it's true that there are really no new stories, just the same old ones dressed to affect us (hopefully), to expand our wardrobe, then I think this adds a nice light sweater to mine.
