Pappa, Mamma, and Baby Bear

wpid-the-land-of-steady-habits-cover.jpgThe Land of Steady Habits by Ted Thompson was a stellar find! I discovered it on the library shelf while looking for books on CD. I received so much more than anticipated from this fictional novel.

This is the story of a retired man in his sixties, his ex-wife, grown son, and the relationships they have with each other and the world around them. Their inability to understand their own inadequacies, much less each other, are cause for disaster.

The story is poignant and beautifully written. I couldn’t wait to hear how it ended. The book is insightful and the tale, gripping. So much of this novel moved me emotionally. I thought it was excellent! I can only say, read it!
