Laura & Emma
Laura & Emma, is set in Manhattan, partly on the Upper East Side, and presents characters whose lives are so immersed in privilege that they can’t recognize it. Protagonist Laura is a single mom and her daughter, Emma, has many people in her life who love her. While Laura conveys an aura of independence, she seems to take for granted all the benefits she receives from her wealthy parents. Greathead’s prose is often very finely written, and the characters are complex and interesting. I kept thinking about everything in my life that I take for granted, and in that way, I found unexpected connections to these characters.
