Place. The debut novel by Jane Delury titled, The Balcony, keeps a place constant and tells us the stories of some of the people associated with that place over time. The opening vignette grabbed my attention and interest. While I became a bit less focused for some of the middle chapters, the final chapter closed the book with one of the best chapters. The variety of different people Delury presents and their struggles and advantages are all interesting and suited perfectly to the place and to the time period in which they lived.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
