• Otherwise Engaged


    I expected this novel by Suzanne Finnamore to be a light and fluffy brain break. Instead, it was a bright, funny look at the more brow-raising side of engagement. Some excerpts that had me laughing aloud on the subway: “Talking to him was deeply satisfying. Being with him held a natural pleasure. Perhaps he is gay, I thought.” “I need to feel the air on my face,” says Chad. He seems almost unbearably handsome as he says this. This may be the moment in time when he peaks, like a bosc pear.” “Sure, there are other fish in the sea, but I like these, floating here on top. They’re easier to catch.”
