Review of “Everybody Has Everything” by Katrina Onstad. In the first pages we find that a man has died in a car crash and his wife is in a coma. Their two-year-old son is left to their (newish) friends to care for. This is the story of that couple, the friends, taking in the kid. They are otherwise childless. It’s simple, but the writing is beautiful. We read about people and their reactions and that is all.
