An unexpected delight in the multitudinous pleasures in Lily King's new novel is narrator Stacey Glemboski's beautiful soprano, which lifts into a breath-catching ballad at a key moment. This is the evocative story of Casey Peabody of Cambridge, Massachusetts, who waitresses while persevering with her first novel when her old friends have moved on to monied careers or marriages. Casey is a captivating protagonist. Witty, clever, and vulnerable, she balances writing with serving dinner customers, dodging past-due notices, coping with the grief of her mother's recent death, and navigating the love of worthy and unworthy men. Glemboski's warm voice has great narrative appeal, and she populates the wealth of interesting characters with believable, imaginative voices. One wants to remain long in their company. A.C.S.
