Stephanie, Alone

Recently finished Emily, Alone by Stewart O’Nan with mixed feelings.  Dude can seriously write, I kept turning pages which is the ultimate compliment, but I got a little bogged down in minutae.  It seemed exhaustive detail at times, and I thought he  could’ve taken some risks instead of making everything so cyclical.  But the battle b/w mom and daughter certainly rang true, and it was enjoyable and worth the read particularly if you’re into mature fiction.
