The House of Broken Angels is the book I'm now reading. I recommend it. It's the story of 3 generations of a Mexican family, now in the U.S. The oldest member of the family, the great grandmother, has just died at nearly 100. Her son will be celebrating his 70th birthday on the same weekend as the funeral. He is terminally ill, and the family has planned a large birthday celebration thinking it will be his last. They all get together, first the funeral, then the party. The book goes into all their lives and is a gem. I think anyone of advanced age will identify and give pause.
