My Absolute Darling, Gabriel Tallent
This is a beautiful book. It is devastating and heartbreaking and maddening, but it is beautiful. When I picked it up, I had a feeling that I would love it. I didn’t start reading it right away, because I wanted to finish something else first, but I kept being drawn to it. Something told me it would be amazing, and it was.
(This book is also potentially super triggering: there is emotional abuse and manipulation, there are rape scenes, and there’s quite a bit of violence, so be aware before you pick it up.)
