Emma Straub's Modern Lovers
Just when I think I never ever want to read a book about well-off New Yorkers again, Emma Straub goes and writes one so good that I have no problem admitting how wrong I was. It's the story of two intertwined families in Brooklyn, and marriages working and not working, and teens falling in love and in friendship, and nostalgia, and real estate, and music, and everything awesome. It's gonna be perfect summer reading for those of us who want something a little substantial but completely enjoyable. I think it's the first book all year that I really LOVED and was eager to get back to whenever I put it down. A.
