Although it didn’t take me long to read this short but sweet work, I did have to think about the story for quite a while afterward. Perry is definitely the antihero with his alcoholism and blackouts, and the ending is fitting.
The use of stream of consciousness is artful, and I think it’s one of the aspects to this book that makes it stand out the most. The grief, the love, and the loss Perry endures are all vivid and carefully laid out. I rate this novel 4.5 stars.
