Katherine Coble's review
Feb 03, 2020
Honestly. This book is like someone decided to do a weird sort of Frankenstein assembly by patching together Peyton Place, Mildred Pierce and Lolita. Unfortunately they picked the worst of each of those to emulate. There’s all the misanthropy and sexual cruelty of Peyton Place, the bitter mother-daughter wrangling of Mildred Pierce and the brute attempts at romanticising sexual exploitation of children from Lolita. But there’s really none of the pluses that salvaged those books from their dismal underpinnings. There’s no lyric prose, warm insight or quotidian beauty.
