Zany. Prepare for pleasure, even laughter, when you read Patricia Marx’ zany novel, Starting from Happy. All relationships are quirky, but Imogene and Wally are two of the oddest characters readers are likely to encounter, and enjoy getting to know. The structure of the novel itself is funny: short chapters, as brief as a single word, including author commentary. Her experience at Saturday Night Live and The New Yorker comes through with skit-like narrative and perfectly chosen words. Read any sample, and if you like it, you’re likely to enjoy the whole thing.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
