"The burning question, which Attenberg explores with patience and sensitivity, is why Edie has embarked on her self-­destructive path. The answers themselves aren’t surprising: Edie married too early, felt ambivalent about parenthood, became disillusioned with her career. What’s remarkable is the unfailing emotional accuracy and specificity with which Attenberg renders Edie’s despair." (via ‘The Middlesteins,’ by Jami Attenberg - NYTimes.com)
I keep telling y’all to read this, so if you don’t believe me, believe the NYTBR at least. (GO JAMI!)
