George & Lizzie: A Novel
Lizzie Bultmann, an often-unlikable poetry lover and the daughter of two unloving psychology faculty, finishes her senior year with a bang when she decides to sleep with the entire starting line of her high-school football team – a challenge she dubbed the “Great Game.” A couple years later Lizzie is sitting stoned on the floor of a bowling alley in Ann Arbor, Mich., when she meets her future husband, George Goldrosen. George, a dental student from a loving home in Tulsa, is set on a path to become a well-loved dentist and family man. As we follow this nonlinear account of Lizzie’s sexual and romantic relationships, we get to enjoy meeting a whole cast of complicated characters that are formative for our protagonist.
This slice of (a crazy) life drama by Nancy Pearl explores family, empathy, friendship, coming-of-age and overcoming the past. George & Lizzie is a slow-paced novel that focuses on rich detail setting and complicated characters. Fans of domestic fiction will enjoy this messy, charming and edgy story of a woman coming to terms with her life choices.
