Believe the hype. It's that good.
This book was sooooo good!!!! Linked stories featuring a hard-to-like but very real female protag. So many gut-punch moments; sparsely written, beautiful sentences; spot-on descriptions of NYC, addiction, narcissism, loneliness. Reminded me of a few other favorite linked stories (included in the comments). Would love to hear your recs. NB: Care Bear pic has nothing to do with the book, but it's fab and I was looking for an occasion to share it.
