KIRKUS REVIEW

One feels while reading this that it is a somewhat thin story, with a doubtful focus -- just what road is it traveling and why? The story of a family -- at odds more or less -- who gather at the old home for the mother's funeral. Of the impact of externals, the illness of the disagreeable brother, the accidental death of an idiot boy in a neighboring asylum, the suicide of the brother's wife, the illusive fascination the asylum and its inhabitants and doings seem to have on the various members of the family, -- and the effect of all this in deflecting attention from the purpose of the return. Well written -- but why written?
