"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Red Car

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Red Car

By Marcy Dermansky

Publication Date: October 11

From Amazon:

Leah is living in Queens with a possessive husband she doesn’t love and a long list of unfulfilled ambitions, when she’s jolted from a thick ennui by a call from the past. Her beloved former boss and friend, Judy, has died in a car accident and left Leah her most prized possession and, as it turns out, the instrument of Judy’s death: a red sports car. 
Judy was the mentor Leah never expected. She encouraged Leah’s dreams, analyzed her love life, and eased her into adulthood over long lunches away from the office. Facing the jarring disconnect between the life she expected and the one she is now actually living, Leah takes off for San Francisco to claim Judy’s car. In sprawling days defined by sex, sorrow, and unexpected delight, Leah revisits past lives and loves in search of a self she abandoned long ago. Piercing through Leah’s surreal haze is the enigmatic voice of Judy, as sharp as ever, providing wry commentary on Leah’s every move.

  1. Sounds like it could be interesting. Hope you enjoy it!

  2. Not sure if this one is my type of read, but it sounds like it could be a good read!

  3. Very interesting choice, not sure if that is my type of book though. Also, sorry for the double links, my phone froze and linked an old post. If you can please delete the first one, sorry about this!

  4. Sounds like a great book. Enjoy!

  5. The Red Car is a novel you want to read again right after you've finished it. It's a road trip, a treatise on the dangers of marriage (especially for women), a book about the search for self. And it moves like lightening, buoyed by the writer's stripped clean sentences and wit. It's one-of-a-kind, adventurous and bold and surprisingly lovely.
