It's a Saturday morning in Brooklyn. Joel Miller, age twenty-eight, stands outside his locked bathroom door. Behind it are his girlfriend Lisa, a Dixie cup, and a pregnancy test. While she stalls for time, Miller is left in his hallway to wonder and wait: for the results of the test, for the pieces of his addled life to come together, for some kind of divine

I'd read "A Friend of the Family" by this author and was not very impressed, but this novel sounded like something I'd be more interested in, so I gave it a try. If you're looking for a quick read that is also well-written, you'll enjoy this story. Characters feel real and the plot moves along smoothly. Satisfying ending as well.

I was surprised by this first time novel by Grodstein. I enjoyed her short stories on a recommendation from a friend and had heard the premise of this novel and wondered how she would be able to keep it all together. She did a remarkable job. Although the time that passes in the novel is just a few hours, Miller's history comes through using a number of flashbacks and catchy section headings. It was at times both funny and sad, and Grodstein's ability to write from a male's perspective was fascinating... (of course I am not a guy, so I have no idea what they think - but what she writes sounds pretty good). I would definitely recommend picking up this book, and look forward to another novel by this storyteller. And I love the title.
