I like challenging books that make you think, and leave you happy that you did. Typically, I find character driven literary fiction the most satisfying, although I in no way think of myself as a serious literary critic.

Desperate Characters.a Masterpiece.

Desperate Characters - Paula Fox 4.5 stars.

Very well written. Extremely enjoyable. A short book about the erosion of relationships, whether marital, personal, or professional. Sometimes it happens because people change, but most often it can happen because people stay the same.

Desperate Characters is the first book I've read by Paula Fox, and I would definitely read more based on this one.
