I guess my life hasn’t always been happy, or easy, or exactly what I want. At a certain point, I just have to try not to think too much about certain things, or else they’ll break my heart. Jonathan Franzen

The novel’s protagonist is Pip “Purity” Tyler, a young woman grappling with a pointless job, crippling student debt and a toxic relationship with her mom… along with plenty of sex, travel and murder.
