Review: Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill

Dept. of Speculation - Jenny Offill

I just spent the last hour and thirty four minutes reading the entirety of a novel that left me unsettled, sad, and impressed.

 

The text is primarily made up of short paragraphs, thoughts really, that include references and quotes and are somewhat a stream of consciousness but taking a form that is unexpected.  

 

 

Highly recommended with the caveat that it does include infidelity and a few crude word choices.   

 

So glad I read this, but now I need to read something light and fluffy to relax my brain...
