Taft by Ann Patchett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Ann Patchett is my "go to author" when I am in book limbo and she didn't fail with this book. The story of Nickel's relationship with Marion, their son Franklin and Nickel's bar and the people there was enjoyable. I love Patchett's writing style and how she brings so much life to her characters in so few pages. Definitely not Patchett's best, which I consider to be Bel Canto, but still glad that I read it.
