Book Review
T.C. Boyle's novel, inspired by a true story, is about the relationships between a Vietnam vet, his mentally ill 25 year-old son Adam, and Adam's new lover Sarah, a right-wing anarchist. The chapters are alternately told by the three main characters, and the level of mental dysfunction in Sarah and Adam's chapters was uncomfortable to experience as a reader. The book has many tense moments and is well-written, using powerful imagery and varied sentence structure for each character.
