This latest novel by Jami Attenberg is a new story and a familiar feeling. The characters make the reader feel uncomfortable, even judgmental, yet the reader is compelled to learn what they can about them before the story ends. Attenberg’s writing is evocative, relatable and sometimes shocking.
All This Could Be Yours is an exploration of what grief often looks like when the grief may be for the traits you have inherited rather than the parent or husband you have lost. We observe the motivations of lonely people through a rotating cast of narrators, some of whom mean well, and others we may find unredeemable in the end.
I won’t purchase this title for my (High School) library due to the mature content that may not appeal to teens, but I would recommend it to adults looking for a literary family drama.
