She’s Come Undone

Wally Lamb

Character-driven novels are my catnip, and this is perfect. Dolores Price makes her way through molestation as a child, college as a 257-pound freshman, marriage to a handsome narcissistic man willing to sponge off her, to finally find herself by the end of the book.

Wally Lamb gets women and is wonderfully apt at portraying them on the page. Dolores is unforgettable.
