The Illumination: A Novel by Kevin Brockmeier
The Illumination: A Novel

Katherine Bailey, January 3, 2012

I don't think I've ever cared about a set of characters as much as I did reading "The Illumination." Brockmeier explores the lives of these characters by studying their pain, physical and emotional, and the result is something transcendent and utterly beautiful. I couldn't help but tell every person in my life to read this book.
