The Widower's Tale

The Widower's Tale - Julia Glass All of the characters felt authentic and intriguing, growing and learning as the story progressed, even those who only played bit parts to flesh out the story and environment. I could picture the small town New England setting, where houses that have stood for generations get modernist additions as the suburbs encroach and fleets of immigrant laborers are dispatched to care for their expansive lawns. Above all, I loved Percy's voice, his slightly anachronistic vocabulary and manner, and his endearing refusal to play by anyone else's rules.
