Divisadero by Michael Ondaatje
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I loved how Ondaatje structured this book. It starts with out as the story of 4 people--a family--and expands and contracts to explore the lives of those people and the people who touch their lives. Ondaatje's sentences are beautiful even when his subject is ugly and the insight into what it is to be human is amazing. The counts toward the Canadian Book Challenge. If you haven't read Ondaatje you need to. He is a master.
