I’d forgotten that the book is loose modernization of Edith Wharton’s Ethan Frome. You don’t need to be familiar with that classic to enjoy this humorous and ultimately profound story about a family dealing with misogyny and social media. It takes place during the Brent Kavanaugh hearings so it takes a bit of an adjustment to read within that context. The ending takes a surprising turn that attempts wrap up themes and the title somewhat successfully. Despite the humor and excellent writing, this isn’t a must read.
