Alice McDermott “Charming Billy”

A very good book! Lots of feeling, character description, a good story... Billy Lynch, the central character, is an alcoholic who has just passed away as the novel begins. The story starts at Billy's funeral and then goes back and forth through time and we know of Billy's life from the time he returned from WWII until his death from alcoholism. This book is about the life, love, and relationships of Billy's family. The story is a tale of love found, love lost, and of the close ties of family.
I really liked all the characters, especially charming Billy.
An enjoyable read!
