Reading Friends: I had family in town this weekend so did not find time to get a post together. Briefly though, I want to recommend a remarkable novel that I loved: Normal People by Sally Rooney.

This story of young lovers showcases the bonehead ways that people often act when figuring out how to be in relationships. But it also takes seriously the power of young love to change people, to help them become themselves, to see themselves both within and without their families and friends. Simply rendered but deeply complex, it also includes one of my favorite ambiguous endings of recent reads.

Everyone, go read it so we can talk about it!
