Happy Birthday to Wally Lamb's latest, I'll Take You There, which hits shelves today.
That's what Felix Funicello, the narrator of Mr. Lamb's latest heart-tugger does as he examines his relationship with the key women in his life. Through this time travel he gains a greater understanding of these women and what was happening in their lives. Felix was first introduced to us in Wally Lamb's novella, Wishin' and Hopin'. It was set in 1962 and young Felix is navigating his way through 5th grade Catholic School. It's hilarious and heartwarming. Very much like that great TV show The Wonder Years. In I'll Take You There, Felix has grown up—in more ways than one.
I'll Take You There was most deservedly a LibraryReads pick for the month of November.
