But what carries this book far beyond its well-crafted characters and gripping plot is the murky undercurrent of questions it poses. How does imperfect memory guide the hand of the present? What is the instinct that lures us towards tragedy, the impulse to insert ourselves into the story? How far will we go to satiate our hunger for resolution?
