A Gate at the Stairs

A Gate at the Stairs - Lorrie Moore I think I would have enjoyed this book more if it hadn't so completely lacked focus. The storyline involving Tassie's relationship with Sarah and Edward and their adoption of Emmie was engaging, and the racial issues it explored were interesting and relevant. And then, suddenly, 3/4ths of the way through the book, Moore just dropped that storyline entirely and decided to focus on...what? Tassie? Death? Afghanistan? Loss? I'm not even certain. And that was the problem with this book. I wish she'd stayed with Sarah and Emmie.
