Author Ted Prokash introduces his book The Brothers Connolly:
Napawaupee, Wisconsin is the hometown you all remember, where the hottest action going is high school football or statutory rape and booze is the salve for what Jesus can't heal . . ." The Connollys of Napawaupee are the quintessential small-town family. They are the "royals of a cast-off kingdom, curators of an inbred knowledge, the keepers of a dull flame . . .
In The Brothers Connolly three generations of this proud, prosaic family will be defined by their aspirations, their vices and, finally, by tragedy.
Ted’s introduction does not begin to describe or hint at the greatness of his writing. His detailed descriptions of the Connollys’ dysfunctions are beyond impressive, magnificent gets close and monumental is a decent adjective. I usually have problems with a book written in Omniscient Narrator, I tend to get confused as we jump from one character’s thoughts to another. Ted solved that problem so well, I was able to follow every last little bit.
O those little bits and pieces, Ted has examined and enlarged the thoughts, interactions and psychiatric strategies of all the characters. These people are real and very three dimensional, their thoughts, hopes and dreams are laid bare for us and at times it is wonderful and sometimes very painful, even distasteful.
This is one family you will not soon forget.
I found a handful of spelling errors, so 4.9 of 5 stars!
