Open Water by Maria Flookby
Gail Mazur recommends
Open Water, a novel by Maria Flook (Pantheon): "Maria Flook's people in
Open Water are the product of her full-hearted embrace of an American kind of nuttiness and a zest for their strange self-induced troubles. The margin, which is their habitat, is wildly, deliciously drawn by a writer of enormous intelligence and insight into our character."
