Modern Lovers

by Emma Straub


Reviewed by Linda:

This entertaining domestic drama follows two families in Brooklyn during a year of surprising developments for the parents, Elizabeth & Andrew and Zoe & Jane. They have lived as neighbors since the break-up of their college band, and have raised a son and a daughter respectively. When secrets from their performing days come to light, and their newly adult children fall in love, life gets very complicated.
