You Think It, I’ll Say It, Curtis Sittenfeld
The author’s first short-story collection captures the very essence of what it was like to be alive in pre-COVID America. A quick read of ten stories featuring an Ivy League student, a lawyer on a honeymoon, a housewife fantasizing about a career meeting an an old friend whose persona and lifestyle may seem to all be built on a lie. Each story is suffused with themes of greed, infidelity, longing, and ambition within the constructs of relationships, class, gender roles. Questionable decisions and missed connections… how they effect facets of daily life.
