Universal Shipwreck

dept of speculationSometimes it’s really nice to find a book that you can finish, and enjoy, in just a day. Such was the case with The Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill. This story of a marriage is told through brief paragraphs and sentences but packs a wallop in those few words. I like this quote from the book blurb in our catalog– “a beguiling rumination on the mysteries of intimacy, trust, faith, knowledge, and the condition of universal shipwreck that unites us all.”  I love the imagery of ‘universal shipwreck.’
