The writing in this novel is good but the story is flat. The story is topical so maybe it would have been more interesting if one had read it when it was published in the early 1980's, but I doubt it. This book has several elements such as interesting characters and settings that should make it more engrossing but the author fails to engage the reader in any meaningful way. I selected this book based on a New Yorker article I read - supposedly this is her best book. Guess I won't be reading any more.
