You Don't Love Me Yet (by Jonathan Lethem)

Read for my book club! It was a very fast read (I breezed through it in a few hours yesterday) and has some original elements, particularly all the conceptual art stuff. But the characters don't really come alive very well, one character in particular. I won't spoil it, but the ending makes absolutely no sense with That One Character completely undeveloped. Also, when a man tries to write about women having sex, it can sometimes be really embarrassing. And this was embarrassing in that sense. Dude, you have no clue.

Anyway, I recommended it to the book club, so I hate that it was so disappointing. Sorry, book club!
