Long Drive Home
By Will Allison
Genre: Literary Fiction, Adult
Review: I started reading this book at Barnes and Noble on Friday. After reading the first chapter, I didn't want to leave. Luckily, this book arrived at the library on Saturday. I devoured this book in one day. The novel is written in a letter/confessional style, with excerpts from a letter from father to daughter. The father was well-rounded, and I sympathized with him even when he did stupid things. As his life spirals downward, his love for his daughter always shines through.
This book exhibits there is hope for realistic, literary fiction, that it can be down to earth and engaging, once again.
