Not when I tell you that my problem has nothing to do with the novel itself but rather in conjuring the right words to do it justice You see every account I run through my head makes it sound boring than it is I guess I should just start by telling you it’s about two couples who met during the Great Depression Sid and Charity Lang live well on inherited wealth Larry and Sally Morgan struggle in comparison but have inviting prospects in the groves of academe While Larry and Sid were junior colleagues in the English Department at the University of Wisconsin their wives met at a mixer that led to the alliance Despite the generally hard times the two couples shared lots of laughs and slathered layers of glue on to their friendship Hard knocks ensued and health became an issue yet the ties stayed intact But nothing much happened you’d call sensationa

Where are the things novelists seize upon and readers expect? Where is the high life the conspicuous waste the violence the kinky se
