California by Edan Lepucki
" Not satisfying to me either as literary fiction or as genre. The sentences aren't beautiful, and the plot is thin—not much happens in the present tense, and it feels like you're reading an updated Greek play, where characters come onstage to say,... " Read more of this review »

" This was, simply put, the worst book I have read in recent memory. I'm shocked at the number of positive reviews. Frankly, I'm not sure why I read the entire thing: it was disjointed and overly self-conscious, and took itself WAY too seriously. Ev... " Read more of this review »

More like 3. 5 stars...

A fascinating, if slightly scattered, self-examination. Ehrenreich insists this isn't a memoir, but a lot of it is, and it's often quite entertaining.

What did teenage Barbara see that night? Why was she prone to see it? She co...more
