Jill Alexander Essbaum's debut novel, Hausfrau (Random House, 2015), is getting a lot of buzz. And it deserves it. The book's sort of an Anna Karenina/Madame Bovary hybrid set in the present time. It's beautifully written and very affecting. Recommended.
My contention is that this is a book which could only have been written by a poet. And JAE is a fine one.
