My parents and grandparents told no stories about their past. So when I read lovely books like these that share the author's life, I get a feeling for the ages in which my parents, great grandparents, and grandparents grew up. A lovely look at days gone by.

This is the second Maxwell book I've read, and he makes you think. This is a fictional book, but based on his early life, and the death of his mother during a flu epidemic. Although written in the third person, the story looks from three different perspectives during the course of the tale. Maxwell, who was the editor of the New Yorker, uses language to convey tone and the emotion of the story.
Maxwell was a close friend of Maeve Brennan, and I ended up requesting this book after I spent some time reading Brennan.

A little predictable, but still excellent. Though the large size of the print annoyed me a bit.
