I really enjoy books that take on tense personal relationships and emotional development with both dignity and as a integral part of the greater story arc. If you’re the same, Laclair’s “Radio Head” is a must-purchase. The dynamics between characters are so deftly written that you can easily empathize with each through limerance, arguments, joy and pain as they one-by-one struggle for ways forward through their respective tumultuous lives. Icing on the cake: the writing is steady, smart and incessantly honest (which is why I made it the title of his review, ha).
Long story short: a wonderful novel so worth the read. I can’t wait for more from Ms. Laclair.
