Harmony's grief is complicated by the relationships around her, and Eddie's concern about how necessary he is to other's happiness. This is a road story in the traditional sense, with Harmony journeying only to discover, inevitably, that you can go home, but you can never go back. The Late Child is a reasonably insightful book about human nature and relationships. The author is a Pulitzer Prize winner and his book is as well written as you would expect.|
This is not a rollicking adventure story, but rather a travelogue through contemporary American life. Not for the adrenaline junkies, but eminently readable.
