I really enjoyed this book, major TW that the author gives on the first page. Very nostalgic for me as it is about a pop group in the early 2000s ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I LOVED the first half!!! It was so creepy and reminded me of Wuthering Heights or Rebecca which I LOvED! The second half with the reveal was not for me, too magical and icky. Definitely glad I read it though

I loved this book. This multigenerational, decades spanning book is so artfully crafted with its irrevocable choices that affect characters differently and permanently. Systemic racism is another main character in this book, sending characters on widely divulging paths. So many different layers and plots and complicated emotions in this family‘s story. An incredible novel. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Not my favorite of his work, I much prefer his other books, but if you do read this you can just skip ahead until at least he moves to a Chicago bc the first few years are drunken/high ramblings that even annoyed Sedaris in the prologue he admits this. As it continues it gets better and better and more like what we‘ve come to expect from Sedaris #coronabook #34 🦠🦠🦠

I loved that it was set in my home town in W Michigan and I enjoyed this book, I just didn‘t love it as it would have amazing moments of poignancy and then complete nonsense the next minute

Birdsong28 I found that as well, I just couldn't keep up with the changes in tone. 2y
