Heart-breaking story of a man desperate to reunite with his deceased wife.
I’m Jim McKeown, welcome to Likely Stories, a weekly review of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and biographies.
Over the course of my reading life, I have been fortunate enough to gather a small number of books which deeply affected me and drove me to tears. For example, A Little Life by Yonagihara, The Goldfinch by Donna Tart, and Iris Murdoch: A Life by Peter Conradi to name a few. I now have a fourth to add to my list: Paris in the Present Tense by Mark Helprin.
