I really enjoyed this novel. It's full of people we have met in life, whose actions are often beyond our comprehension. There's the 2 steps forward, 1 step back aspect of the lives of most of us.
There is the creepy husband, who presents to many people as nice enough ... and to some women as sexually very attractive. There's the actress whose ineptness in almost every aspect of life makes our face droop with hopelessness
But there are instances of really caring among most of the characters. And there is resolution. But always within the realm of 'real life.'
