Read ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Bill Clegg Free download Did You Ever Have a Family ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free As their secret histories finally come to lightLit by the clarity of understanding that true sadness brings Did You Ever Have a Family is an elegant unforgettable story that reveals humanity at its worst and best through loss and love fracture and forgiveness At the book’s heart is the idea of family – the ones we are born with and the ones we create – and the desire in the face of everything to go on living. Did You Ever Have A Confusing Story Generic Narrators And Forced Epiphanies 25 stars rounded up to 3After a woman loses her entire family in an accident she packs up and drives away without telling anyone where she s going or who she is Through the perspectives of a dozen or so narrators we have to piece together what happenedIt s potentially affecting material for sure but the narrators all sound alike whether they re middle aged women or teenage boys Clegg whose addiction memoir The Portrait Of An Addict As A Young Man was gripping and visceral writes in a plain fashion that s meant to be earnest and heartfelt I often found it dullThere s disappointingly little range in his characters voices hence it s hard to tell them apart and the book is nearly humourless I know I know how could tragedy be funny Believe me a born novelist would find a way to insert humour if only for contrast And I m not sure why some sections are narrated in the first person and others are in the thirdPlus call me a curmudgeon but I m getting tired of the interconnected story device the we re all part of the same universe isn t life mysterious structure whether it s in film Babel Crash or booksI love genuine fictional epiphanies but I hate when they re forced and what Clegg tries to pull off here feels slightly phony It s as if he s exploiting a tragic subject for cheap emotion and profundityStill there are a few passages of clear simple prose that are effective and I found the final pages dealing with guilt and redemption uite lovely Just a theory but I wonder if a lot of the acclaim in publishing circles comes from the fact that Clegg is a powerful New York literary agent
