Review: 337

337 by M. Jonathan Lee My rating: 4 of 5 stars 3.5 Stars, bumped for the handling of trauma, addiction, manipulation of childhood memories, and its unflinching look at death and dying in an elderly relative. M. Jonathan Lee's latest novel 337 is a poignant look at domestic abuse and emotional loss, particularly its effects on two brothers, Sam and Tom. We know from the start of the novel that their mother "left," and in leaving has doomed her two young children with their bullying and emotionally abusive father. Sam, the older child, is the central figure of the novel. He's recently had his marriage fall apart, is extranged from his father and paternal grandmother, and is distant from his younger brother Tom, who he both loves and was slightly jealous of while their mother was still with them. Tom has battled addiction and Sam thinks he's pretty much lost in a delusional world, one in which he is in a rock band and jams with Neil Youn
