Days of Awe
A NoveleBook - 2015
Celebrated for her irresistibly witty, strikingly intelligent examinations of friendship and marriage, Lauren Fox ("An immensely gifted writer--a writer adept at capturing the sad-funny mess that happens to be one woman's life "--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times Only a year ago Isabel Moore was married, was the object of adoration for her ten-year-old daughter, and thought she knew everything about her wild, extravagant, beloved best friend, Josie. But in that one short year her husband moved out and rented his own apartment; her daughter grew into a moody insomniac; and Josie--impulsive, funny, secretive Josie--was killed behind the wheel in a single-car accident. As the relationships that long defined Isabel--wife, mother, daughter, best friend--change before her eyes, Isabel must try to understand who she really is. Teeming with longing, grief, and occasional moments of wild, unexpected joy, Days of Awe.
