The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake - Aimee Bender I listened to the audio version of this book, read by the author. I thought that it was amazing! The writing! The nuance! It's such an odd book, full of the richness of life. I kept thinking, "Ah, NOW I know what it's about..." only to have the author switch gears and go off in a different direction. Most enjoyable.

The author also gave the reading a very sensitive treatment. I really enjoy the lilt in her voice. I highly recommend the audio version.
