Perfect by Rachel Joyce (1/52)

When a son sees his mother do a hit and run, how does he keep seeing her in the same way? Rachel Joyce offers us the rangy logic of a thirteen year old as he struggles to make sense of a world quickly spinning out of control. On the other hand, the focus on a man struggling to grip reality and his would-be attraction points you to the future of those built on anxiety. Joyce plays with the stirring difficulty of honesty. I enjoyed this book, though it took me a while to get into it. Nice read to start 2018.
