Year 2, Book 99

99. The Magician’s Assistant by Ann Patchett
The story of a gay magician and his assistant of 22 years, whom he married after his true love dies of AIDS and he learns he will soon follow. The story covers their relationship and mostly the fact that after his sudden death she finds out that he has a family in Nebraska that he never told anyone about. The story mostly chronicles her meeting his family and coming to terms with who they are and how they fit into his earlier life before she became a part of it. I give it an 8 out of 10.
