Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Portable Veblen by Elizabeth Mckenzie is a character study of two disparate people with dysfunctional families and their ability or inability to form a strong relationship. Parts are funny as stories about quirky people and dysfunctional families often are. Mostly though, the book is slow-moving and with many parts - for example, the squirrels, the appendices, and the pictures - that I just don't get.
