Henry, Himself, Stewart O’Nan reprises characters from earlier novels. We get to observe the everyday life of protagonist Henry Maxwell and his wife, Emily, as they go through the change of seasons and do what most of us do: fall into our typical patterns, and stumble into new people, places and things that tend to surprise us and shake us out of our routine. O’Nan offers readers a portrait of a guy in Pittsburgh who could be any one of us. Readers looking for lots of action and drama won’t fine it here. What patient readers will find is a good man living a good life and well-written prose. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Henry Himself from amazon.com.
