A NovelBook - 2013 | 1st ed.
The characters' lives are linked to each other by acts of generosity or cruelty. A daughter in early 20th century Chicago; a hobo during the Great Depression; an office girl in 1950s Manhattan; the young man reveling in 1960s San Francisco, then later tends to dying friends as the AIDS pandemic hits; as the new century opens, a man who has lost his way finds a measure of peace in a photograph he discovers in an old box-an image of pure and simple joy that unites the themes of this work.

Here's an idea that absolutely should not work: a novel of the 20th century in verse. The late, brilliant David Rakoff makes it sing. Suggested by Jennifer K.
