A fun read. Find a quiet place and enjoy the unexpected humor and conversational style of this author's very first novel and telling. It's a look at a fictional Italian family taking place over a weekend in 1988 in St. Louis, Missouri. The book was born of love and looks deeply into several love connections but targets and questions discrimination and stereotyping and attempts to see what others "see". The Order looks into the minds of others and represents all things unsaid but thought. Re-visit landmarks of the City and enjoy the numerous St. Louis mentions and discussions. Enjoy the ride and stay onboard for the bullseye look from St. Louis at the unthinkable things The Order manifests!
