About 50 pages into what is supposedly one of the 21st century’s best novels. It’s about this older couple and their relationship to their kids and all that classic dysfunctional family-ness which sold me immediately. What I can’t get over though is the character of Chip Lambert. Never before have I read of someone that has so many similarities to myself (for better of worse [I mean the guy was even with someone named Melissa.]) I won’t get too specific about how he is like me because I think that probably none of my followers have read this so posting a ven diagram of sorts would be obscenely irrelevant. Maybe later actually. Whatever.
