It’s what you would see standing underneath the “Bean” at Chicago’s Millenium Park. I took this picture while on a trip with my dad and his friend “Uncle Jack”. I picked it because, of course, most of the book is set in Chicago and also I felt like it symbolized the theme of the book; that everyone could be looking at the same thing and see things from their own warped perspective. Six very different characters and points of view of the same story.
The second book, as you may have discovered, is less of a character sketch than the first, and more what happens when everyone’s lives get entangled and their points of view start shifting ever so slightly.
