An excellent debut (I believe) by Liza Klaussman. An intriguing and often beautiful read. Set over 2 decades, events are revealed through 5 different character narratives. The book is not set chronologically but Klaussman pulls it off with absolute ease. My one complaint is that this book had many shadows of the incomparable Gatsby. Despite being set 30-40 years after Gatsby. It was something I couldn't shake off while reading it. I'm not sure if this was intentional by Klaussman or not. All in all, a very good novel. Worth a read. I look forward to what she produces next.
