Rate this:
A compulsively readable, big-hearted story about a family with special gifts who sometimes stumble in their efforts to succeed in life, The Talented Ribkins draws on such novels as Toni Morrison's Sula and Colson Whitehead's The Intuitionist to weave themes of race, class and politics into a wonderfully accomplished and engaging novel by a talented new author.

It was a really good book with a fabulous cast of characters, but I felt the end was....well not much of an ending. It just sort of ends, and I think more could have happened with Elaine or 50 more pages or something. Maybe a sequel? Maybe I missed the point?
