Edgar & Lucy

by Victor Lodato

From the very first pages, young Edgar captures the reader’s heart. He is so fragile and so vulnerable. While his bond with his grandmother is storing and loving, his relationship with his mother, Lucy, is distant and complicated. With his father long dead and gone due to curious, unspeakable circumstances, Grandmother Florence is Edgar’s lifeline. When she dies, he finds himself gravitating toward another pair of welcoming arms- those of the man in the green truck. A troublesome entanglement ensues, and lives are shattered and rebuilt. The story brutally, yet tenderly, examines the ties, lies and secrets between parents, children, lovers, and the lonely. This is an absolutely beautifully written and compelling novel. – Anita
