really liked it

I think what people call a gimmick with Carol Shields, they would call stylistic genius if her name were Philip Roth.

Loved the dual perspective. Carol Shields is already so perceptive, and the two sections deepened this.

Philip Roth wouldn't have the insight to write in that clever why worry?
