Kennard is very funny, and this novel abounds in pithy, wry observations and situational comedy. “Everyone his age seemed shocked by parenthood, as if they’d lacked the basic ability to project forwards before entering into it,” Elliott thinks. However, Kennard is less sure-footed about plotting or character nuance. Like Emily, you find yourself staring at texts, worrying where all this is going.
