Don't hesitate, just jump into the lives of Straub's 'Modern Lovers'. I loved this book that explores the nuances of lifelong friendships, stale cobwebby marriages, and new beginnings.— Rachel W.
“Set in trendy Brooklyn, Straub's latest novel follows the lives of former bandmates Zoe, Elizabeth, and Andrew and their teenage children, Ruby and Harry. When Ruby and Harry begin a relationship, their parents are forced to face and reveal long-buried tensions and secrets. Straub's spot-on depictions of middle-age suburban life and teenage angst are alternatively searing and hilarious. This book is the ultimate literary beach read!”
