The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer
The Interestings

tangotue2, October 22, 2014

The Interestings grabbed me from the first page as I easily related to Jules (Julie)lack of self worth. I loved how true to my experiences in the 1970's and 80's this book portrays bridging many significant events together that I remember so well.
Six friends who meet at a summer camp for aspiring artists in the Berkshires (My home growing up)captured the true essence of that very important time in my life with characters that were interesting and mostly likable. Watching them grow through the decade's facing similar fates as my friends in real life was in some ways frustrating, but also kept me enthralled to find out what was going to happen next.
I highly recommend this book to the generation x crowd and anyone curious enough to explore a true depiction of those special times that were in many ways so much easier and straight forward.

Luis Alberto Urrea has captured my heart beginning with his novel 'Into The Beautiful North'
He is a rare Author in that he envelops one in to a world of romance, and wit that becomes more entralling with each turn of the page.
Luis has become my favorite author, speaker, and Literary Lover!
