Taffy Brodesser-Akner: Fleishman Is in Trouble (2019)

Finished it last nite. Her debut novel, recommended to me by my wife. Manipulates narrative perspective in a sophisticated way. Third person morphs into first person. Examines the coming-apart of a marriage of an elite, wealthy couple and how blame, if any, might be apportioned. Reverses the traditional M/F gender roles. This novel began as a hilarious, racy, Rothian throwaway but grew on me till I found myself immersed in the triangular relationships at the end.
