Dept of Speculation

Dept of Speculation by Jenny Offill is an amazing and unique book.

Beautifully written, this is the story of a relationship. Readers will follow the narrator through meeting someone, getting to know him, getting married and having a child.

Set in Brooklyn, people who live here will recognize some of the more ridiculous and charming aspects of the city.

The amazing thing about this book is that Offill took the time to make each and every paragraph perfect. Each one is physically separated on the page like a stanza of poetry. And each one stands on it own. But together they tell the story of a life.

If you are a fan of books or good writing, check out this unique novel.

Offill, Jenny. (2014). Dept of Speculation. New York: Vintage Books.
