Intricate and committed book about loving a city. Sets up a complicated denouement and then pulls it off, right when I thought it was going to bunt.

“She often thought about the power everybody had to ruin everybody else. You could do it by accident, just by showing up, or you could make the wrong decisions in such small pieces that by the time you realized what you were doing, it was too late.”
Rosalie Knecht, Relief Map

“He would be her currency of intimacy. Many people might know little things about her but there would be very few in her whole life, she thought, who would hear her secret. It would always be with her, right there at her elbow. That was what made you grown-up, she thought: having the past following you around. Having a past at all, really.”
Rosalie Knecht, Relief Map

“She often thought now about the power everybody had to ruin everybody else. You could do it by accident, just by showing up, or you could make the wrong decisions in such small pieces that by the time you realized what you were doing, it was too late”
