"Jack Shanley is a well-known New York artist, charming and vain, who doesn't mean to plunge his family into crisis. His wife Deb gladly left behind a difficult career as a dancer to raise the two children she adores. In the ensuing years, she has mostly avoided coming face-to-face with the weaknesses of the man she married. But then an anonymously sent package arrives in the mail: a cardboard box containing sheaves of printed emails chronicling Jack's secret life.

adult fiction; dysfunctional family drama. This was OK but I lost interest 80 pages in. ( )

Interesting and, in many aspects, painfully honest account of human behavior, of lives spiraling downward. Or forward, following an improbable act. Sit back, buckle up and be ready for some crazy stuff here. This book and these characters will resonate with you for a long time afterwards. ( )

One of the blurbs on the cover calls this book "funny" but I saw it more as tragic. It has the 21st century satirical detachment that notes the absurdity of situations, but still it read more sad than anything. Deb's marriage to artist Jack Shanley is falling apart. He has cheated on her, again, but the evidence is so glaring and literally in her face, that she can't ignore it this time. The mistress has sent Deb a letter and a whole box full ($87 worth!) of email printouts of their smutty correspondence and torrid details of their time together. Sadly, this falls into the hands of her 11 year old daughter, Kay, and 15 year old son, Simon before it makes it to Deb. While it is nice to see Jack get his comeuppance, it is hard to like anyone in the story. Deb (former ballet dancer) was Jack's mistress before she was his wife, so it's a shame she didn't see the writing on the wall. The book is well-written though and part of its uniqueness is its use of time. Part 1 summarizes the affair's discovery in excruciating detail. Part 2 summarizes subsequent years that pass in the blink of an eye with future outcomes for many of the characters. Part 3 returns to the present and the weeks right after the affair blows up the family -- Jack is good at blowing things up -- part of his artistic drama, and part 4 wraps everything up nicely. ( )

Nice writing, though at times the prose felt like it was trying too hard. The story felt unfinished to me, but all in all I enjoyed reading it. ( )

> Par K. Moussou, P. Frey, O. de Lamberterie (Elle) : Les 39 meilleurs livre de poche du moment
6 juin 2018 - À New York, Jack et Deb semblent baigner dans un « bonheur parfait ». Lui est un artiste reconnu, elle est prof de danse. Leurs enfants vont à l’université. Un matin, un paquet de mails relatant les infidélités de Jack fait exploser le joli vernis familial. Un premier roman à l’ironie décalée, qui a reçu le prix Fitzgerald en 2016. --Nathalie Dupuis

Little sleep's-head sprouting hair in the moonlight,
when I come back
we will go out together,
we will walk out together among
the ten thousand things,
each scratched too late with such knowledge, the wages
of dying is love.
