* Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill


Dept. of Speculation is the story, told in short, disconnected snippets, of a marriage coming apart (and perhaps, reviving?) It’s clever and often right on with its snapshots, whether it’s the skewering of self-help books or (especially) the tender retelling of the young daughter’s adventures. But it felt cold, remote, not really true.
