4.0 out of 5 stars Taut character drama and an eye-opening look at life with bipolar disorder, 23 Jun 2012
This review is from: On the Rocks (Kindle Edition)
I originally read On The Rocks as part of Rosen's collection Seesaw. I probably shouldn't say it was enjoyable, since it features two characters who have a diagnosed mental illness. But that's part of what makes Rosen's writing so captivating - turning what could be worthy and factual into a rollicking good story.

The friendship between Meg and Poppy is very well drawn, and offers a lot of insight into what it's like to live with bipolar disorder. But they both come across a very well-rounded people who are not defined by it, and each of them handle it in different ways. Most importantly, they both come across like people you've already met, worked with, or even have as friends. It's sobering to realise that you almost certainly already know someone who is living with such a condition.

This is another solid, fast-moving and believable character drama from Rosen, and deserves to be read by a wide audience.
