Description
"[Mary] Robison could work for a food or drug packager: she squeezes dire warnings into tiny spaces. Her new novel, at a 166 pages, broken into 225 numbered chapters, recounts an unkempt marriage between Eve, a movie location scout, and the dying Adam; her ongoing affair with Adam's twin brother, Saunders; her concerns for a mental-patient in-law, Petal; and car trips with a doltish intern-colleague, Lucien. And then there are lists, quoting gun-holster catalogues, private promises ('I'm never again wearing anything bought at Lowe's'), and late news about post-Katrina New Orleans ('The rate of Armed Robbery is up 1,022 percent'), where all this is coming down. The book can be read in half an afternoon, leaving plenty of room for afterthoughts about Robison's funny and heartbreaking conversations, which run short because both sides can barely contain their impatience or intelligence or high (both ways) private style."The New Yorker
