    Apr 02,  · The Great American Novel has a lot in common with the multitude of pets this boy had probably tried to raise in his short eight years on this Earth: While he may think they are alive and well, maybe on a farm somewhere, the reality is that they are all completely and unequivocally dead. Feb 11,  · Post-Mortem: Half in Love with Death by Emily Ross. To draw that out of an adult is no small feat — the capacity to bring down the evil-doers — but as a character unto herself, I wish I had the capacity to smack some sense into the protagonist of Half in Love with Death.3/5. Love tells the story of Bill Cosey and the women who love him, fight over him, make him miserable, and finally drive him to his grave. As the novel begins, Mr. Cosey has long-since died under suspicious circumstances, but his memory and his presence live on inspiring a deep and lasting hatred between his granddaughter Christine and his widow Heed.
