A Selfie as Big as the RitzBook - 2017
"The women in Lara Williams' debut story collection, A Selfie as Big as the Ritz, navigate the tumultuous interval between early twenties and middle age. In the title story, a relationship implodes against the romantic backdrop of Paris. In "One of Those Life Things, " a young woman struggles to say the right thing at her best friend's abortion. In "Penguins, " a girlfriend tries to accept her boyfriend's bizarre sexual fantasy. In "Treats, " a single woman comes to terms with her loneliness. As Williams' characters attempt to lean in, fall in love, hold together a family, fend off loneliness, and build a meaningful life, we see them alternating between expectation and resignation, giddiness and melancholy, the rollercoaster we all find ourselves on"--Provided by publisher.
