All my Puny Sorrows by Miriam Toews

I started bending pages so that I could quote how funny Toews is – how wise she is – how believable and human her characters are – but soon realized that the whole book had bent pages so that wasn’t going to work. This story about two sisters – one a beautiful, talented, funny, cool world famous concert pianist (bent on suicide) the other barely scrapping by in life (bent on saving her beloved sister) – it is told from the point of view of the barely scrapping by sister – it is funny, wise, believable (did I mention that) – really her best yet!
