A busy week where I didn’t even realise that I didn’t get any book mail! I made some purchases of my own on the weekend though:
The Roxy Letters by Mary Pauline Lowry is an epistolary novel between Roxy and her ex-boyfriend/roommate Everett. Roxy’s life is generally underwhelming but when gentrification takes over Austin, she decides to take action with her friends.
Rodham by Curtis Sittenfeld is about Hillary, an opinionated girl who stands out from the pack at law school. When Bill asks her to marry him, she responds with a definite no. What happens to Hillary and America in this alternate vision of the past and future?
Catherine House by Elizabeth Thomas is about an unusual American college. You have to be brilliant to enter, but you will also have no association with the outside world during your three years there. But when you graduate, prestige, wealth and honour are yours. For Ines, on the run, isolation is fine. But when her roommate breaks the rules and never returns, Ines must discover its secrets.
