Believable characters with distinct personalities. The dialogue is okay, nothing outstanding or memorable.
No desire to re-read this book. I am interested in other works by this author.
The Zonderling is a throwback to the kind of place you'd find in a madcap comedy from the 40's featuring a bunch of starlet wannabes on the hunt for a theater career and a man. But, this is a modern version, and a modern heroine, and, most importantly, a modern author. So what we get is a much more bracing and piercing view of the whole shebang.
It's very easy to say dismissive and disparaging things about New York City. It's a lot harder to have sarcastic fun while still getting across the excitement and vitality of that same City. It's harder still to tease and kid the City and the out-of-towners who visit it while maintaining the sunny and understated, but smart, good humor that has become Ms. Niebruegge's trademark.
Bottom line - I liked her Wisconsin, warts and all, and now I like her version of New York City - warts and all. This is a nice find.
I received this book free thru goodreads in exchange for a review.
