Recommended by Christopher Frizzelle

Claire Dederer's Love and Trouble: A Mid-Life Reckoning is a funny memoir about sadness, friendship, Seattle, literature, and the mysteries of physical desire.
Sean Nelson wrote the following about her new book: "The 'Midlife Reckoning' promised in the subtitle consists of a frank, almost lurid candor about the challenges that attend a privileged existence: marriage, motherhood, career—the archetypal prerogatives of white, liberal bubble-dwellers from time immemorial.
But this time isn't immemorial. It's now. It's the last 40 years of Seattle—a recognizably generational parameter—revealed through one restless woman's struggle to see, become, invent, reinvent, and ultimately forgive herself for the unruly impulses, ideas, and secrets that are the components of that self."
