I have a hard time believing that any of the National Book Award judges this year read this book all the way through. This is such a big, bold, unsettling, artful yet thoroughly entertaining novel. Homes manages a major feat here, taking us deep inside the darker and more disturbing parts of our America suburban lives and brings us out the other end to what could hardly be imagined at the beginning of the novel: a happy ending.
