A Gate at the Stairs

A Gate at the Stairs by Lorrie Moore. I listened to this meandering book in my car because I didn’t have time to go to the library and get anything else. To steal a quote, this book “drinks its own bathwater.” Nothing interesting happens for the first 80% of the book, except for tangents that are not resolved, then the end rushes up and blitzes the reader. Unsatisfying at best, overwritten at worst. 23/100
