On the surface, our narrator has everything you could want in life. She’s young, thin, pretty, a recent Columbia graduate and lives in an apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan paid for, like everything else, by her inheritance.
But there is a vacuum in her life and she’s got the perfect solution. She’s going to take a year under sedation to relax and hide away from the world. What could possibly go wrong? Blackly funny, merciless and compassionate, My Year of Rest and Relaxation, is the perfect read for fans of The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
