    Description

    Over twelve novels and two collections, Lydia Millet has emerged as a major American novelist, writing vividly about the ties between people and other animals and the crisis of extinction.

    Her exquisite new novel, the first since A Children’s Bible, tells the story of an Arizona man’s relationship with the family next door, whose house has one wall made entirely out of glass. The story delivers attraction and love, friendship and grief. But Millet also evokes the uncanny. Through close observation of human and animal life in the desert, she captures the daunting scale of human society without losing sight of the real difference one person can make in the world.

    Written with humor and benevolence, Dinosaurs asks big questions: Can a person be good? Can a man be good?

    Compellingly told, emotionally moving, and intellectually rich, Dinosaurs may be Millet’s finest novel yet.

    A Day in the Life of Gill

    3.5 stars for this touching, albeit meandering story about Gill. This book made several "Best of" lists for 2022. I agree it was well written and heartwarming, but it didn't change my life. It is really the story of Gill and a short two-year chunk of his life when he for no well explained reason decides to walk to Arizona from NY and move into a castle next door to a glass house. He has money to burn and there is a lot of internal monologue regarding him coming to terms with his worth in a non-monetary way. The neighbors have two kids, and he befriends the little boy, Tom, who occasionally gets picked on by a bully. He also volunteers at a Women's Shelter and meets a bird enthusiast and then self-appoints to backyard bird vigilante to protect the birds that are getting shot in the neighborhood. And, so it goes. It's truly a lot of Gill saving the day. If you enjoy books with no plot but a really thoughtful and well-developed character - this is for you. I do recommend it, but as I said, it wasn't a read that has changed my life in any huge way. It's short and sweet and sometimes that is exactly what you need. However, if you are looking for a character driven novel that will leave you with a tear in your eye and thinking about it long after it is done, I recommend, A Man Called Ove, by Frederik Backman. Dinosaurs was kind of a watered down but similar story.
