Where to begin? I love Meg Wolitzer. Only recently did I become aware of her, and to date I've only read two of her books. But from what I know, from what I've read, this is the novelist for me. This is someone interested in the things I'm interested in -- human relationships, relationships between parents and children, relationships between lovers. There's romance here, but never sentimentality. There's sex, but it's always realistic and tasteful. She's not afraid to deal with the great existential issues, but her novels are always so well-grounded in her characters that they never feel pedantic or overly cerebral.

Meg Wolitzer is -- pardon the cliche -- a hidden treasure. If you like Wharton and Woolf, if you like Franzen and Eugenides, then you need to check out Meg Wolitzer.
