Kate BolickIn MacKenzie Bezos' quietly absorbing first novel, The Testing of Luther Albright, the jumble of pipes and tubing snaking through her protagonist's modest two-story house is his very soul writ large. As an emotionally repressed young man, Luther built it and laid the plumbing with his own hands. Twenty-three years later, he's an emotionally repressed husband and father who communes more readily with a flashlight and a propane torch than with his wife and son. To him, a clogged drain is a welcome reprieve from conversation.
