Description

Casale documents the pain and freedom that come with recognizing these behaviors - and there’s pleasure in recognition for reader. This book is funny and heartfelt—readers will root for all three of these women as they shake themselves off and start asking what might actually make them happy.

Though the wife seems to be perfectly happy, all the narrator does is judge and berate her (not the husband) for the marriage because she thinks that her friend has "settled". But the thought such as it was was useless because no one had sex with Joy until she was twenty-four. Yes, she’s reaped so many opportunities because of pretty privilege but she still doesn’t feel confident in herself.

And then I shut the hell up because I realized something: my body was defining my life and her body was defining her life, and it was reckless and absurd of me to pretend we were living the same life. If you feel bad at all let me know because there are other options that might help just as much,” she’d say, but Joy was fine and felt better.

She wouldn’t know much more than that; she wouldn’t know that even though she’d told herself for ages that she didn’t mind being single and that she didn’t want children anyway and that turning thirty very soon meant nothing, somewhere it terrified her that at this age she’d never been in love with anyone and that no one loved her, no one at all, and coming off of this state, not too much later, she would meet Theo. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. These cis, straight women know both who they are and how to perform the women men want them to be; they've been on both ends of life's most sensitive questions and know that a kind response and an honest one aren't usually the same thing. I read it a couple months ago but I can still pull details from the novel and it makes me want to sigh really loudly and book an appointment with my therapist that I no longer have. Cash-strapped Joy and Annie decide to rent their apartment's extra bedroom to charming, older Theo, and Joy and Theo get kind of snuggly close when Annie then decides to move in with her boyfriend.A blistering transparency of their little home would flash through Joy’s thoughts: the matching teacup and teakettle from a flea market they’d bought together, uselessly cheerful. I would have liked more about friendship, more about finding yourself, it seems like we have just scratched the surface here and there was a lot more we could have dived into. I know it would kill her so I don’t tell her; I just think it and wonder what motion there was in her heart the moment she said it and I fear whatever that motion was is not part of me like I want to believe everything about my mom is part of me. The novel starts off with a murder, and with seven people trapped on an isolated Greek island lashed by a "wild, unpredictable Greek wind.
