2010 book 198

Ayelet Waldman's Red Hook Road
I've actually never read any of Waldman's previous books--the subject matter just didn't interest me, I guess, b/c I have enjoyed the few of her pieces I've read online--but this has been getting stellar reviews so I gave it a go. It's about a couple who die in a car accident on their way to their wedding reception, and the aftermath for their devastated families. There's some really interesting class tensions going on here, as well as some excellent parts involving music and a library. I really enjoyed this! A.
