Kinsella, Sophie. Love Your Life. Dial Press, 2020. ISBN 978-0593132852 432 pp. $
Writer Ava gives up on dating apps and meets someone at a writing retreat where all of their identities are anonymous and she is free to be adventurous. Can their relationship sustain the real world?
I just didn’t buy that Ava would fight so hard for a relationship with someone so grossly different and incompatible, and since the sex is off the page, I don’t believe the great sex was enough to salvage the relationship. The best parts were the dynamic between Matt and his roommates and the quirky people at the writer’s retreat, and Harold the dog.
