51YbY7ErhzLHeft by Liz Moore is another book which I have had on my list for a while and have renewed from the library 3 times before picking it up. I don’t know how it got on my list (I should keep better track of this since I am always curious when I like a book to know its source). What a delightful book. It was sad, for sure, and all the characters could be pitied, but it had such hope and hopefulness that it was a joy to read. We learn about Arthur, a former professor, who has not left his house in many years and is severely obese, his former student and penpal over the years, and the penpal’s son. Their lives weave together, apart, and then together again. I enjoyed reading it so much that I was sorry when it was over.
