This short story collection was quirky, awkward and brilliant all at once. Curtis Sittenfeld has written a series of snapshots into everyday lives in a witty and really unique manner – she cleverly weaves in current political discussions, characters that have made (or are in the process of making!) questionable decisions, and musing on everyday connections gone awry.
I most enjoyed that I was completely taken aback by the angle and ending of each story – there is not a whiff of predictability in sight! The raw, candid and witty humor of the writing make for an extremely readable collection of stories. I’d particularly recommend this to those who enjoyed collections like ‘American Housewife’ by Helen Ellis.
