Lark and Termite

Lark and Termite Lark and Termite by Jayne Anne Phillips

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
I could not put this book down! Phillips' prose is poetic. The various narrative points of view work well...overlapping, interweaving. The book takes place over three days in two time periods. The characters are remarkable in their ordinariness. That Phillips is able to tell part of the story from the point of view of a child with Downs' Syndrome is telling.
