Apologize, Apologize by Elizabeth Kelly
The book jacket claimed that Kelly's debut novel begs comparison with John Irving and I would have to agree. Protagonist Collie Flanagan's family contains raging drunks and selfish millionaires who cannot escape the heartbreaks of life. Kelly's quick pacing keeps the story moving from one agonizing moment to the next. The only flaw for me was the ending which, like life, did not offer much resolution.
