An interesting premise of a dysfunctional family meeting up to disperse the fathers ashes. All the typical messed up relationships are exposed here-nothing that hasn't been done before but it is kind of refreshing but one little irritation for me was in describing something the author then has to use 2 or 3 similies. It felt like the author was driving the point home. I gor it the first time Noah!!
