@rufithorpe is a national treasure and I am in love with her and all of her books. This newest is so funny and tender and surprising that I keep wheeling and dealing with myself so I won’t finish it in a single sitting. Out in June but you can preorder now and should.

Jennifer Weiner’s delicious new novel... is slyly, delectably subversive... sexy and suspenseful and so much fun... It’s the lobster roll you get with mayo and melted butter — because why choose?

The very best thing about this book might be the way Quindlen, an anthropologist of domesticity, catalogs the sparklingly random moments that make up human experience.

As a person who has dabbled in both academia and publishing, I felt like this book was written just for me. It’s funny and often satirical, yes, but it’s also deadly serious about motherhood and creativity and how utterly, soul-crushingly tedious cis men can be.

Next Stop: (A Graphic Novel)

This is such a precious book. It’s physically beautiful—heavy in the hands and satiny and deeply saturated with color—and then just visually brilliant, with hauntingly desaturated memories and imaginative panels that teeter between realism and fantasy.
