Monsters. There be monsters in Daniel Handler’s novel titled, Bottle Grove. The beasts are often human, despite the presence of foxes, including a human one named Reynard. Handler uses the tech environment of San Francisco as the backdrop for this comic dark view of contemporary life and marriage. There’s love and greed, and a lot of clunky prose on these pages. Every reader open to reflecting about the forces inside and outside us that bring us together or tear us apart will find something to appreciate from this novel.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
