Late City by Robert Olen Butler 290 pages

One hundred and sixteen year old Sam Cunningham reviews his life with God as he lies in bed in a nursing home he has lived in for twenty some years. From his growing up years in Louisiana to his role as a sniper in WWI, Sam chats with God about what he regrets and what he is proud of. He goes on to discuss marriage and fatherhood and becomes insightful about what he failed to see as a parent and a husband.

Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Olen Butler has written a decent book, but I felt that it lacked creativity and was somewhat predictable.
