it was amazing

This book is like a slow burn. I am still thinking about scenes a month after finishing it. Barthelme's prose is jaded and blissful. The story is basically a contemporary Southern love triangle, but it's as if the angles of the triangle are in motion, shifting the shape. This is a narrow, elegant story that has, at its core, a real acceptance of the failures of modern love.
