Wow, ok, where do I begin. You ever have a book that gives you a reading hangover because you stayed up way too late to read it and then kept replaying scenes and passages in your head that you just can’t think straight? This book did that to me. “The Pisces” follows Lucy, a listless grad student who just doesn’t have her shit together. Her long-term relationship falls apart after punching her ex in the nose. Then she’s invited to house-sit for her conveniently rich sister where she attends group therapy and engages in graphic and often hilarious sexual encounters. Oh, and she falls in love with a merman too. This book tackles sex, obsession, addiction and the absurdity of modern love with a lot of humor and realism, which is weird to say because, did I mention she falls in love with a merman? This book is perfect book club material for a crew that’s down for some thoughtful, funky shit.
