    1. Sorry, in my humble opinion Wharton is NOT good writer.However I did read his books as a kid when I wasn't very ambitious reader.


    2. Very real and equally heartbreaking. In some strange way it was like catharsis. definitely not for the faint-hearted.


    3. Very autobiographical book by William Wharton. About his daughter, her life partners, kids and her death in car accident caused by the smoke from burning fields. In this accident died she, her second husband and their two daughters. Despite the fact it's about death of very close relatives it's about life. William Wharton after this tragedy was fighting for banning the burning fields.



    4. Maybe that's true that Whorton's literature isn't very ambitious but one thing you must to admit - he can really touch readers hearts.
