Marriage or neglect of a city s infastructure or neglect of rules and responsibilities to others and the human struggle to understand integrate and respond to itThe novel is primarily told through the alternating viewpoints mostly but not xclusively in the form of internal monologues of immediate and family members of dying wealthy patriarch Victor Tuchman a ruthless corporate gangster who seems like a horrible of Bernie Madoff Harvey Weinstein and Jimmy Hoffa Victor as a character is really only the named storm that has rolled through the Tuchman family and its Le syndrome de la chouquette environs we hear directly from him once at the outset but the novel is concerned withxamining the wide swath of fallout and collateral damage his actions have wrought The Intimate Life of Alexander Hamilton (1910) emotional and otherwise so he remains mostly a dark and ominous looming presence gradually sketched out for us by others over the course of the novel The novel s structure is appropriate to thexamination of a ripple No Way to Treat a First Lady effect and Attenberg s storytelling method thus seems to take a concentric circular pattern Attenberg takes pains toxplore the motivations of the few characters primarily matriarch Barbra who deliberately chose to align their lives with Victor s then the La Bourse pour les nuls ensuing impacts on other characters who just got stuck with him children for instancespecially Tuchman daughter Alex and son Gary but also in laws and grandkids and then most interestingly to me a selection of ancillary characters that these characters Η αγάπη φόβο φέρνει encounter during the days Victor lays in his New Orleans hospital bed whether in the corridors of the hospital itself or in the city s public transportation its bars and restaurants its neighborhoods and parks In one masterful passage that was but one page on my little new Kindle Next Gen Attenberg ties together the narratives of the primary and all these ancillary characters in a way that I think is worthy of Faulkner highlighting our for better or for worse universal interconnectedness The New Orleans setting seems perfectly appropriate to thisndeavor as the phenomenon of Hurricane Katrina and its ongoing aftermath represents not simply a natural disaster but rather what happens when one collides with an historical legacy of generations of people s decisions and actionsI guess it makes sense that stories centered around families of rich monstrous parents seem to be having a cultural moment consider Succession of which I am admittedly a rabid fancue tinkly raging piano music Attenberg is darkly funny like Succession but I appreciate that she also Sacred Apples embraces an inherently hopeful outlook Her characters are flawed and struggling but for the most part relentlessly reflective and selfxamining They are actively creatively living with whatever they ve been left to work with and it s a big creatively living with whatever they ve been left to work with and it s a big mess but the message here is that it s never too late until you re dead to weed that garden to get your hands dirty to alter your heretofore relentless course and rebuild maybe somehow better All This Could Be Yours is a slow meandering portrait of a dysfunctional family It took me a minute to find its rhythm when I started reading this but as it progresses the steady unravelling of flawed characters begins to make perfect sense This character study asks big uestions of its readers about what makes us who we are and the irrational nature of familial love In the The Vanishing Statue: Nancy Drew Diaries, Book 20 end I felt it was well done and it captured my attention. Ion is at its peak Asach family member grapples with Victor’s history they must figure out a way to move forward with one another for themselves and for the sake of their children All This Could Be Yours is a timely piercing xploration of what it means to be caught in the web of a toxic man who abused his power; it shows how those webs can tangle a family for generations and what it takes to maybe hopefully break free.

Fine The Writing Was Very 
The writing was very I m not uite sure what was happening or why I didn t connect to any of the characters He always wanted to talk to Alex because she was not just his sister but also his friend and also they had both survived that house in Connecticut together and it was a natural instinct to accept her hand when she reached it toward him and she was so breathless with the news about their father s heart attack she sounded nearly joyful which anyone lse might have found inappropriate but he didn t he was on her team and she was on his pg 11So I went into this book the way I prefer to go into all books completely blind What would it be about What would the author be like This is my first Attenberg What surprises lay in store for meThe book does not have a plot I m just going to come out and say it It Jami Attenberg is one of those novelists I am always curious about because I read her books and I know they are good but they never really connect with me on the level I want them to This doesn t mean she is a bad writer she is an objectively good one but the way in which her books should work for me and then don t uite work for me fascinates me and I cannot figure it out The cycle played out again here this is a messy family drama that shifts perspectives holds on to a few key reveals and really asks about anger and forgiveness within families These are all topics I m deeply interested in And I found many of the characters incredibly compelling It just never uite hit for me in that very specific subjective way that I hoped it would It s really interesting really readable with people who are messy and barely keeping it together and I think it is probably a great fit for 99% of other people who love that kind of bookAt the center of the book is Victor on his deathbed after he was a criminal a bad husband and a bad father Not just a little bad a lot bad His family reckons with this in different ways His daughter Alex rages his son Gary disappears his wife Barbara gets uiet his daughter in law Twyla prays And Ironclads of the Civil War everybodyventually has a breakdown The characters were so deep and interesting I loved the way Attenberg really rooted the story in New Orleans I wish the cover made this clear while there is a storage unit scene I would have loved a New Orleans themed coverThe shuffling perspectives made it a little harder on me as a reader Along with our main characters there s plenty of side characters who come in and out Sometimes they get a whole chapter sometimes just a paragraph I liked the idea but didn t love the xecution But overall it s very smartly plotted strong use of flashbacks great reveals As indicated by its title and Storage Wars sue cover this little novel importantly largely set in New Orleans is a meditation on dealing with legacies whether family relational Ringside Seat to a Revolution An Underground Cultural History of El Paso and Juarez 1893 1923 economic civic institutional or otherwiseMost compellingly I think the book considers the specific legacies of abuse andspecially of neglect be it The Viscount's Duel emotional as in parentalmotional neglect or neglect of R family but mostly to interrogate her tightlipped mother Barbra As Barbra fends of Alex’s unrelenting uestions she reflects on her tumultuous life with Victor Meanwhile Gary Alex’s brother is incommunicado trying to get his movie career off the ground in Los Angeles And Gary’s wife Twyla is having a nervous breakdown buying up all the lipstick in drug stores around New Orleans and bursting into crying fits Dysfunct.
