I enjoyed this book. However, it seemed hurried to me. I noted that most of the chapters were initally published as short stories. It shows. The chapters work nicely as self-contained stories, but the narrative seems to develop amnesia; Olivia will mention things ("my brother Walker," as a minor example) as if she had never introduced them before, when actually, in an earlier chapter, we had spent a lot of time with them. Ultimately, it felt as if I had skimmed the surface of these characters' lives, rather than the deep dive a really lush novel offers. I agree with the readers who say that she's a good writer. I'm interested to see what she does next.
