Sisterly dynamics with a Shakespearean twist. Rose, Bean, and Cordy grew up in a small college town, benignly neglected by their Shakespeare-scholar father and absent-minded mother. Now adults (in age, but not maturity), they all return home and need to sort out their personal lives and their relationships with each other. I liked the small-town setting and their serious reading habits, but I could’ve done without the heavy-handed psychoanalysis and emphasis on the effect of their birth order. The first person plural narration was interesting but felt gimmicky.
