What a fun novel. It tells a familiar story of a woman who becomes a wife and mother and feels like she's lost her own identity. But Corwin provides such an interesting back story for Geraldine that it feels fresh. I loved the inclusion of her work with African-Americans and a German-Jewish group, as well as the wry humor throughout the story. The audio, read by Renata Friedman, is excellent.

The final half got me. Can’t imagine what Billy and these 130 pages would be without Penny. I enjoyed this mess.

this was a pretty solid collection, overall, with nothing too standout that i will remember for long. mostly about marriage, relationships, fidelity.
