A beautifully written story about family, death, craziness. I was surprised at how good a writer Dawn French is, though I shouldn't have been, given the brilliance of her comedic talents.

This book made howl with laughter and weep deeply.

Highly highly recommend.

I really enjoyed this book. It bounced from narrator to narrator, each revealing a little bit more about Silvia and at times allowing the reader to connect the dots. There are some truly funny scenes as well, that only Dawn French could come up with. Overall, the book was much more serious that I thought it would be.
