I can’t get enough of this author. I can’t explain what it is about him. I get lost in his writing. As a “portrait of modern America, exploring issues of class, changing social mores, the legacy of racial violence, and the nature of creativity and art”, We Are Water did not disappoint me.
I’m a teacher of literature. I love the classics. I’m one of those dull, English-teacher-y types who loves to get lost in novels of the past; contemporary lit just doesn’t often do much for me. Anything by Wally Lamb is the exception.
