Why did you read this? Jeremy handed it to me in Shakespeare and Company in Paris and asked me to read page 65 (our standard method of choosing books to read). It seemed well-written and interesting.
Has Jeremy read it? Just a few pages before he gave up.
42-word review: A complicated story about a multigenerational family of women. Clever use of imagery and themes, but too full of horrible things happening to unlikable people for me. If I’d seen the humor compared to Confederacy of Dunces, I wouldn’t have read it.
