Book Review: Skylight Confessions



Skylight Confessions by Alice Hoffman

I am a devotee of Hoffman's writing, and was first in line to read her newest novel, which follows the progression of a family through several generations.

Arlie loses her father and finds her husband the same day, and this novel tracks her life after marriage, then transitions to her son's story, and then finally to her grandson, with threads and weaves throughout that leave you wondering how you got from point A to point B so effortlessly.

The writing is luminous, and the story quick to read, though it was not my favorite of Hoffman's (that would be The Probable Future). Still, anything Hoffman writes is recommended!
