We enjoyed Sabra Embury’s review of Emma Straub’s Other People We Married very much.
Sample quote: “Rest assured: Other People We Married is its own thing. While Moore, who provides the cover blurb here, makes her lonely characters the target of her precise wit, Straub treats hers earnestly, as real people on the verge of reform.” (via Beginners | Books | The L Magazine - New York City’s Local Event and Arts & Culture Guide)

We hosted Stuart Nadler last evening at BookCourt. Topics discussed included John Cheever, Jews, New England, and short story writing vs. novel writing.
Thanks to the always lovely Emma Straub who handled the introduction (she loves Stuart’s new book, and said it is one of her favorites of the year), and pick up Nadler’s Wise Men to see if Jason Diamond is right saying that the book is like “Updike and Cheever got together to write a Philip Roth book.”
