Tinkers by Paul Harding

In my string of reading recent Pulitzer Prize winning novels, this was the only one I didn't like. The book is about a man with epilepsy in rural Maine and his son who makes clocks. That might be an unfair description but the book seemed about that mundane to me. Clocking (get it?) in at under 200 pages, at least Tinkers is a quick read. And there are some pretty passages. But I didn't find this book moving, adventurous, or informative. Not recommended.
