The well-written characters are what made this novel stand out. It's a very funny book, but with an underlying sadness and yearning. I'm a sucker for any book (or song, or movie) that get's that bittersweet tone right.
Off-beat characters and odd family dynamics give this story the ring of truth, and the fluid prose makes personalities really shine through. I'll definitely keep an eye out for his next book.
