2018 book 25

Kate Greathead's Laura and Emma
I found this book very READABLE, but am still not sure whether I liked it. It centers on a white woman in New York City, from 1980-1995, each year a little vignette of a chapter, starting from a one night stand with a mysterious man that leaves her pregnant. She is from your prototypical very wealthy, cold, white New York family, and is an exemplar of the same, so I found her fairly unlikable (but interesting), and the book really needed more from her daughter towards the end. I thought the writing here was stellar but the story itself was lacking for me. B/B+.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in March.
