I read a complicated kindness
back in December and was certain I posted about it on the What Are You Reading Now Thread, and so I went looking for my well-remembered and succinct remarks and discovered of course that I simply mentioned that I was reading it.
If it isn't too cliché, and maybe because it is, I'd like to say that I found it somewhat charming, in a Canadian kind of way. But it was more than that, too.
(what is that publication?) described it as "Wondrous
a beautiful and bitter little masterpiece," which I agree with, but it was also
humorous. I found some passages provocative, wry
sad, but very funny too, and for me somewhat nostalgic.
I'll look for info on the others when I get the motivation, maybe, as I haven't read them.
