3.0 out of 5 starsHere we are now
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 August 2018
I read Warga's previous book, My Heart and Other Black Holes, and Here We Are Now brings the same immediacy, though it's less raw and painful. The emotions of an estranged father and daughter finding each other land for me, and I always welcome diverse characters (the MC is half Arab). I assume the title is a reference to the Nirvana song, and music is the unifying undercurrent to this story.
Talia Abdallat has never known her father, but putting together clues from a shoebox of hidden letters belonging to her mother, she figures out he's a famous rock star. Years later, he turns up at her door and tells her her grandfather is dying, and so she leaves with him to meet the other side of her family and over the course of the next fiveish days, comes to learn of her parents' history, her own complex feelings about the father who never came for her, and joined in their common love of music, they find a way to really connect.
