Julia ScheeresSpiotta has written a glorious sendup of contemporary social and ecological activists with all their preening idealism and absurdity — especially the intelligent-sounding nonsense people spew at one another, even as they rarely connect on any meaningful level. This same disconnectedness plagues older characters like Mary and Bobby. Haunted by the past and insecure in the present, they are strangers to their lovers, friends and families, and ultimately to themselves.
