So thrilled to have received my very first starred PW review. And Modern Lovers is also the Pick of the Week! Hurrah!
Here's a little bit of the review:
“Straub spins her lighthearted but psychologically perceptive narrative with a sure touch as she captures the vibes of mid-life, middle-class angst and the raging hormones of youth. She excels in establishing a sense of place: the narrative could serve as a map to gentrified Brooklyn; it’s that detailed and visually clear. Events move at a brisk pace, and surprises involving resurgent passion enliven he denouement. Readers will devour this witty and warmly satisfying novel.”
