Ge tenement His had been a superficially normal childhood in Yonkers New York a time of beers by the river. The kind of thing I usually avoid very well written really heartfelt characters but there s abuse and molestation and domestic violence and all that stuff Seems like the kind of book that the characters will hang around in my mind for a while The story isn t really finished we just saw a bit of it the part in August and then some
