2010 book 220

Howard Norman's What is Left the Daughter
Lovely, lovely book wherein a Canadian man is writing his life story to the daughter he hasn't seen in like twenty years, from the time his parents killed themselves by jumping off different bridges on the same day to his love for her mother to his experiences during WWII. I really liked the narrative voice here, and even though this is a small-town kind of story, there were all sorts of exciting and even terrifying moments. A/A-.
