Book: "The Sky Below"

Gabriel, an unlikeable minor criminal, works writing obituaries for a minor New York newspaper. He also ghost writes for an aging romance writer who he bribes to increase his income. When he develops a slow acting cancer, he takes off to Mexico looking for his father, who disappeared decades ago. He takes up with a rag-tag group of mystics and the book veers into magic realism.

My rating: *** (out of 5)
