It is time for another search of our TBR shelves/piles for those sadly neglected books from the past. Carole’s Random Life in Books is hosting this event.
Today’s neglected book is an oldie! I purchased it in March 2014, and when I started reading it, I was not loving it. But then something happened! This week, HBO began showing a miniseries based on the book, and they renamed it The Undoing. I am enjoying the series, so I started reading the book. I am still reading it, and I am on page 238!
The Undoing (Previously Published as You Should Have Known), by Jean Hanff Korelitz
Description: Grace Reinhart Sachs is living the only life she ever wanted for herself. Devoted to her husband, a pediatric oncologist at a major cancer hospital, their young son Henry, and the patients she sees in her therapy practice, her days are full of familiar things: she lives in the very New York apartment in which she was raised, and sends Henry to the school she herself once attended.
Dismayed by the ways in which women delude themselves, Grace is also the author of a book You Should Have Known, in which she cautions women to really hear what men are trying to tell them. But weeks before the book is published a chasm opens in her own life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only an ongoing chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.
I do believe I will actually finish it this time! What book have you rediscovered today?
