So Long, See You Tomorrow
I just finished reading William Maxwell's So Long, See You Tomorrow. I'd never heard of it and got it out of the library when someone described it as "masterful" and noted some of it is told from the perspective of a family's dog. The book is masterful, it's short, it captures the loneliness not only of childhood but of the act of remembering, and the use of the dog is just brilliant. The book is short, and it's worth spending some time with.
