"This eloquent examination of paralysing grief comes from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Tinkers and follows the terrible journey of a father grieving the loss of his 13-year-old daughter. Kate is the light of Charlie Crosby's life; her death unmoors him thoroughly and spins him into a terrifying descent that he seems unable to stop. With the same skillful prose found in Paul Harding's debut, this second novel "raises the bar" for the award-winning author (O, The Oprah Magazine)."

I loved the poetic language and flow of Harding's first book, Tinkers. This one is no match for it - the poetic language felt forced and the plot felt very constructed, no flow. I will concede that a father might have a horrible breakdown after his daughter is killed, but this went beyond the beyond. I finally quit (very rare for me) at about page 130 and read the end, which did not convince me to pursue reading. Enon is getting many good reviews but I found it didn't ring true.
