That's all it takes for things to go wrong. No, not right, things had always gone wrong for Jim Stegner, and he is still living the grief that came with some of it. But he can still paint, and his paintings are rising in value. Every single one he paints, he can sell. And now, Dellwood is dead.
I loved the Dog Stars by Heller, a dystopian tale on my all time favourites list. Although this one is not going on that list, doesn't mean it's a bad read. Quite the opposite, but it's a different kind of book. This is about a man desparately trying to overcome grief. It's a tale of revenge. It's a thriller. All those things have been seamlessly put together and turned into a book I couldn't stop reading. I'd call it a modern Western novel.
