The Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra is a remarkable debut. Told over the course of three days and focusing on three characters, this is a tale of love overcoming substantial tragedy. I loved it though it is very sad. This story is told in beautiful language and is full of thought-provoking events.
