A Possible Life: A Novel in Five Parts

Connection. Thanks to the subtitle of Sebastian Faulks’ novel, A Possible Life: A Novel in Five Parts, something in the back of my mind kept wondering while I read the novel what might connect the parts. Each part describes a life at a particular time and place. Faulks tells each story with care and precision, focusing close attention on the ways in which the characters achieve a level of understanding about themselves and others. That human connection crosses all time periods and defines us all. Loss, pain, love, everything, takes place in the context of relationship. Those readers who love novels that hold up our human condition for examination are most likely to love this one. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase A Possible Life from
