Summer Reading: “The Answers” by Catherine Lacey
The title of this novel is extremely well-suited for vacation reading. Who WOULDN’T want to recline on a breezy beach or poolside lounger, calmly reading a book called “The Answers” while people around you wonder what could possibly going on between those pages and in your head?
“The Answers” is the second novel from Catherine Lacey. Broadly, it’s about technology and the mysteries of romance. Specifically, it’s about a young woman in New York City who is hired by a male celebrity to serve as a freelance girlfriend (but not in the way you’re thinking). What unfolds is a journey through our modern social habits, with enough thrills to count as a page-turner and enough insight to count as a brain-improving artifact.
In other words, the perfect summer wormhole in which to disappear!
