All This Could be Yours

All This Could be Yours by Jami Attenberg focuses on the Tuchman family whose patriarch has had a heart attack. One child, Alex, returns to say goodbye to her father with whom she has a fraught relationship. The other child, Gary, does not return, his relationship with his father being even more fraught. The story is told from multiple perspectives and is interesting with possible mob connections and a problematic parent relationship, but some characters aren’t fully integrated and there were story elements which I didn’t feel were fully fleshed out. Overall, I enjoyed the story and it was a quick read, but it wasn’t a top read of the year.
