This Bright River - Patrick Somerville I just could not get into this. Many of the pleasures I'd recalled from the author's earlier work are here, but I also kept getting bogged down, remained detached, felt myself dragging through. Read about a third, and decided to set it aside. Look to reviews by others--the novel seems to be getting much love.

Thanks to Little, Brown and NetGalley for the advance copy.
