A true gem of a book for fans of formally inventive novels. Heti write humorously and brilliantly about the inner lives of women, especially women who are artists. Most of the book centers around the narrator's relationship with her best friend and sometimes rival Margaux, a painter.
My favorite novel! This slim little book packs a hell of a punch. If you want to see a perfect example of how to tell a story about one thing while talking about another, pick this up. You won't be disappointed!
A delightful and impactful read. Heiny excels at mixing humor and pathos in each of the stories in this collection. The protagonists here are petty suburbanites, and women who rebel against expectations. A perfect pick for the smart reader who needs a good laugh. And these days, don't we all?
It's not the size but how you use it. I'm talking about tiny houses. Wait. What did you think I meant?
An unapologetically profane story about insisting on remembering our history--pain, pleasure, and otherwise.
