Operatic. Readers who like wacky humor, especially comic opera, are those most likely to enjoy reading Nell Zink’s novel titled, Mislaid. I was thoroughly entertained by this southern soap opera and its riffs on race, gender, sexual identity and class. Zink’s characters are memorable, and she develops them in a way that they seem both familiar and odd at the same time. She offers an American family that seems like no other we may know, and yet seems exactly like every family we know.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
