    epub ç A Field Guide to the North American Family ë Hardcover A Field Guide to the North American FamilyWhat we have here is a uniuely organized rough sketch of two suburban families As the title suggests the novella is in the form of an alphabetized reference guide to North American families Nothing about the book suggests Canadian culture was a consideration in its design It seems rather the author preferred the grand sweep of the term 'North American' over whatever coastal US neighborhood the story approximates Each entry contains a page or less one entry does bleed onto the second page of text with some relevance to the entry's title ie guideword Titles include Adolescence Partings amicable and acrimonious Fidelity Irony Youth etc Unfortunately some of the narratives bear little to no relation to the title above it An artsy photo flanks every entry As with the text some of the photos' relevance to the adjacent subject matter is overt and others remaining mysteriou

    epub ç A Field Guide to the North American Family ë Hardcover A Field Guide to the North American FamilyI find it interesting that after writing the glorious tome of City on Fire that Hallberg decided to take a jump into some short experimental fiction It's a beautifully written vaguely haunting look at the all American family and it is well worth the constant page flipping and skimming While I hope for full fiction from Hallberg this was a fascinating read and well worth the wait

    epub ç A Field Guide to the North American Family ë Hardcover A Field Guide to the North American FamilyRegular story very interesting format The story is told through references and cross references illustrated by a series of photographs that didn't always land with me You can read cover to cover or follow the references until you circle around to everything I skipped around following the trail here and there flipping to a random page which caught my eye and sometimes reading a few consecutive pages Fun way to read similar to the Chose your own Adventure books

    epub ç A Field Guide to the North American Family ë Hardcover A Field Guide to the North American FamilyAnyone remember Choose Your Own Adventure books? This is like those with adult topics and laid out like an encyclopedia Alphabetical snippets under titles like Divorce Love Youth Innocence entangle the Harrison and Hangate families Perspectives switch but so does chronology I read pages both at random and in order engaged not only by photo illustrations but also the messy life Hallberg laid on the page I'm a forever fan
