Three novellas in and around law offices, law enforcement and prison. Well done. Experience enhanced on audiobook with three exceptional narrators: Jeff Daniels, Ethan Hawke and January LaVoy. Ethan Hawke’s novella was especially moving

Olga has verve, candor and drive, one of the best characters I’ve seen on the page in several years. A Brooklyn girl with a rich Puerto Rican heritage, she and her brother grow up taking care of each other after mom abandons them and dad dies. Olga at age 40 is a successful woman who lives life with gusto and who seeks love. Olga shines brightly in this novel, and I rooted for her from page 1. Olga Dies Dreaming is the 2022 selection for Greenwich (CT) Reads Together.

Intriguing concept, but had more room to play. Lonely people find one another after they each write their authentic truths in a composition book. The book gets passed along to new people, who write their authentic truths, and it keeps moving around, collecting new people. Some richly drawn characters, especially Monica.
