In this immensely readable novel the author explores questions of identity, fate and circumstance. Why do we become the people we become? Why do we remain stuck in lives we really didn't want? Chaon deftly moves between the past and present in the lives of a set of extraordinary "ordinary" people.

This is the first time I've read Dan Chaon, and it will not be the last. The story itself is a great tale, but the writing style makes it beautifully haunting.

All that would be erased, he thought. He remembered the way his grandfather had described the death of Jonah's grandmother, years and years before Jonah was born. "Excaping this world," Jonah's grandfather had said with wistful admiration, as if the grandmother's death had involved something masterful and Houdini-like instead of a mere car accident.

She is tired today; she didn't sleep well. Recently she's been troubled by strange fluctuations of her pulse as she lies does to sleep, and then, once her pulse stops accelerating and she begins to drift off, her heart seems to stop. It is as if the body has suddenly forgotten that it is necessary to keep blood pumping, and she rises with a jolt into consciousness, like a cork from the bottom of a bucket of water.
