Probably the best thing about Epiphany is the original narration. It is told from the perspective of a dead man looking down on his three grown children.
His older son is a successful businessman living life in the big city. His younger son is a struggling artist who has discarded his talent. His daughter is a young woman trying to live the life of the party. All three return to their hometown for the funeral. There, the older son finds out about a trust fund for him, the younger son tries to finish a painting he started as a boy, and the daughter rekindles an old romance.
This book is short, and for a good reason. The characters are up to his usual par. The whole book is worth reading because of the original end. It's like none other, but there's no reason why no one has ever tried this before.
Basically, Paul McCusker is one of the best authors on the market.
