“Tai Sammons's narration commands attention….Definitely a worthwhile listen.” (AudioFile)
“Utterly entrancing….Every step of this narrative…rings true.” (Publishers Weekly)
“This beautiful, strange novel takes us into the foreign country where those called homeless are at home; the city is wilderness, and the greater wilderness lies beyond. Fascinating and moving, it tells with great tenderness how human love goes wrong.” (Ursula Le Guin)
Each time the story took a major turn I thought I knew where it was going and anticipated a boring cliche, but it didn't deliver any. Instead it was a journey through a perspective that unfurls and changes with time.Sort of a day in the life, but not your average life, and not just one day.
Tideland? (movie) not plot but sort of perspective style, if it took place near Portland. This book is so Portland.
It's not going on my best of shelf with Dune or anything, but I'd say I got my money's worth and am glad I "read" it.
Caroline ' s father was a unique, self managed persin. I missed his character for the last two chapters so much. He was so large and committed. Caroline ' s reflection of her life and his joined together was worth consideration..Just how are we living.
