Little Peter was an angelic and brilliant young boy who spiraled down during adolescence to become one more homeless man living on the street. I waited out ten seconds or so of throat-clearing and raspy keening over several octaves. A bit of a stretch. March 12, 1995 New York City The phone at my desk rang and a crusty, vaguely familiar, tobacco-hoarse voice crackled in my ear. I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway! While I thought the writing was excellent, I have to say that the story didn't grab me. Copyright Part One Sins cannot be undone, only forgiven.

Big Peter seems to be the peace maker of the family. But tell your wife to keep cubes of cheddar cheese with her in a Ziploc bag.

You must have been about seventeen. While I thought the writing was excellent, I have to say that the story didn't grab me. He was something of a clown as well. He was up all last night tossing and turning. The portrayal of mental illness is compassionate, unflinchingly real, and written in a way that breaks your heart.
