'I suppose because he doesn't remember a thing about it He was taken to England as an infant and brought up there Mexico is just a fairy tale to him' 'Oh' Em yawned There seemed no point in pursuing a conversation that had no substance She settled deeper into the seat putting her head back to sleep while Eric droveThis slight but charming story of Eric is about the zigzag way that humans follow through the world their paths diverging far and wide driven by social political and economic circumstances Em is annoyingly grounded and purposeful str
