When an author can take a typical event and describe it as no
other has done, I enjoy it! Jenny Offill
has done just that. This novel (short
story or snippet of life?) follows a young woman through many years. There is
love, heartache, scenes of everyday life, etc., etc. But, the way it's told made me nod my head in
agreement a few times, laugh out loud several times, and truly "get"
it. Quick, witty, and honest.
