Who are those investment crooks who scammed us out of billions? Just ordinary greedy people like the well-drawn characters in Adam Haslett's excellent new book about a bank called Union Atlantic and the world-wide machinations which brought it to its knees, momentarily, until We the People came to its aid. He also includes some likeable if odd individuals and multiple narrators to broaden the picture of our economy just a few years ago and some intense gay sex.

Started off promising enough, but it lost me around page 125. I got upntob225 and just couldn't get myself to the finish line.

Michael was the most interesting character, the rest I found petty and boring. The writing itself is good, even though he gets flowery for what I think, is the sake of showing that he can write prose.

Not for me.

Many families have members who are mentally ill. They are all too familiar with heartbreak and frustration. Treatments vary, and sometimes are unsuccessful. Medications are mentioned in this book that may be effective, but the right combination is too often elusive. It is so very wrong that there has been a stigma attached to people suffering from mental illness. I believe that we are becoming more enlightened as a society in recognizing that these people and families deserve our compassion and respect for their struggles.… (mais)
