Read in September, 2010

Had it not been for a commitment to my book club I would never have finished this book. Molly Fox's Birthday was billed as a novel but is instead an elaborate character analysis of a woman who never makes an appearance - unless one counts the transcontinental phone call. I could perhaps have enjoyed the artful writing if I hadn't been expecting a plot with rising action, climax and other markings of a novel. As it is, I felt cheated to have spent hours plodding through a fictional character sketch when I was just expecting an enjoyable escape.
