Virtual Book Group: Fleishman Is in Trouble
When Toby Fleishman’s soon-to-be-ex-wife Rachel drops their two kids at his place a day early, it does more than interrupt his hyperactive, app-fueled sexual rebounding. It confirms what he’s long known: that Rachel’s demanding job makes her self-involved, or just not interested in their family. When she fails to pick them up as scheduled, things quickly get desperate. At a certain point, readers will note that maybe Toby loves being mad at Rachel a little too much, and suspect that, perhaps, there’s more to the story. Brodesser-Akner’s debut novel is an enthralling, affirming tale of midlife, marital, and existential despair. Shrewd and delectable, this would be a novel to savor, if it were possible to put down.
