Best Boy

519szyUFmCLI picked up Best Boy by Eli Gottlieb on the recommendation of Gayle Weiswasser, who writes Everyday I Write the Book. This was after having read 50% of My Brilliant Friend and not taking to it at all (even though I have only read really good reviews). I enjoyed Best Boy, but I didn’t love it. It was a quick and relatively simple read that reminded me of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. It wasn’t too deep, but was a good story nonetheless.

  1. I thought it was a memorable story. Easy to read, but that is because it reflects the main character’s limited emotional vocabulary, no? Interesting about Ferrante. I haven’t tried it yet.
