Something like sense?
Something like unpredictability? It was meh. The whole experience was meh.
Lionel Shriver interview
Damned novel refused to end. But I suspect that I picked the wrong book to reacquaint myself with.
Some random reading-in-general notes:  Echoes of The Believers by Zoe Heller, with all that unlikable-families shtick. I wanted to feel as overwhelmingly impressed and struck by it as I had been by We Need to Talk about Kevin. Which left me speechless. Perhaps her fiction is just too honest?
We need to talk about Lionel - Shriver on how her feelings are hurt easily
This fascinates me; I wonder if someone out there swears by A Perfectly Good Family and thinks all the other were a letdown? There is no doubt, though, that Shriver is a wonderful writer. Her depth of her characters, the often intelligent and biting tone, the language. Hi, Sue. Then again, TPBW had me reading about snooker.
I gotta say, I really appreciate your honesty in your reviews. I dig your style, yo. Aw, thanks, Kari. Shriver and I have a complicated relationship, as you can see from above. Hello Sasha! Thanks, Hugo. I love that book so much, it shook me while I was reading it. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account. All three want the house.

Just as in girlhood, Corlis is torn between allying with the decent but fearful youngest and the iconoclastic eldest, who covets his legacy to destroy it. A Perfectly Good Family is a stunning examination of inheritance, literal and psychological: what we take from our parents, what we discard, and what we are stuck with, like it or not.
