Touching and soulful.Treads a delicate topic well and helps well-written characters with weakness find strength, a sense of belonging in the world, even as they are not part of it. "Washing the Dead," by Dean Kisling (Sep, 2011) is very respectful of tradition. Reasonably complex narrative that rings clear and realistic. Reminds me of the depth found in Khaled Houseini's work. Highly Recommended.
