Secrets. My best advice to readers of Tracy O’Neill’s novel titled, Quotients, is to give yourself over to whatever it is she is doing and don’t worry too much about what’s going on. Enjoy the precise sentences without worrying too much about why this one follows that one. By the end, you will have watched a work of art being assembled and can close the book with impressions about contemporary life, about the power of secrets, about love and family, and about what it takes to make one’s way in this world. At least that’s what I think I read about.
