Accidents by Yael Hedaya, a review from Atlantic Monthly by Joseph O'Neill.
"The novel is such a noisy site of formal experimentation that it's easy to undervalue its long-standing, perhaps even quintessential, function as a describer of the bourgeois adventure — roughly speaking, the pursuit of plenitude in matters of love, work, and leisure. Indeed, it is nowadays oddly daring for a real artistic talent (that is, one properly attentive to considerations of language and truthfulness) to 'confine' itself to this task. And yet when you read a book like Yael Hedaya's Accidents — a fine-grained, tragicomic, and always gripping portrait of adult love in the making — you wonder why so few such books are produced, and why they are not more fanfared."
