it was amazing

Hard to describe this book without spoilers aside from the setup (which you can read above). Here’s the thing: this is the kind of book that, as a writer, I love because it takes risks but not at the expense of clarity. There are things that will have you wonder what’s real and what’s not, but never (I’d argue) to the point where you forget what you’re supposed to care about. The tricky nature of love both sexual and not gets a pretty substantial exploration here and the reveals are not shock-value variety rather the kind of “wow” moments that are really smart, fascinating, and satisfying.

A great novel about place and siblings and the power of storytelling.
