Charming and gentle and very human. Carol Shields doesn’t just tell the story, she weaves an intricate tapestry with millions of colourful threads made of words.
Who couldn’t fall in love with Larry Weller?
A story full of appealing characters, it relates twenty years in the life of an average, kind, middle class, middle-of-the-road male. Life's questions, choices, and consequences more often seen from a woman's perspective make pleasurable reading as we discover Larry's great passion and consider it as a metaphor of life.
Shields takes us through 20 years of Larry's life, quite an ordinary life. He is fascinated by mazes and makes a living designing and building them. The reader can understand his problems, for they are problems of most humans, and Shields describes them with an amusing twist. The best part is the final chapter, at Larry's party, where the conversation touches a lot of topics without anyone following any one of them.
