Awareness. I’m a big fan of novellas. Structured as tightly as a short story, finely written novellas can uncover insights about human behavior without requiring the creation of an entire world as is usually done with a novel. Mary Gordon offers four finely written novellas in her new book titled, The Liar’s Wife. Gordon explores what happens when individuals experience higher levels of awareness, especially about suffering. Readers who enjoy fine literary prose will find a lot to enjoy in each of these novellas.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
