This book is in conversation with many tv shows and books I like (the author lists them in the back) and each chapter is a conversation between women about events that took place off the page. I would say it feels like it almost works but ultimately I'm more engaged by the texts it intends to be in conversation with. I also found the prose to be needlessly awkward with sentence fragments I often had to read out loud to fully understand (and they didn't seem conversational as much as incomplete.) That was my experience, but your mileage may vary.

This book came out January 7th and I had an advance copy from the publisher through Edelweiss.
