I’m intrigued by her latest novel, Night Film, but want to read her debut first, Special Topics in Calamity Physics. I saw a slew of negative reviews but I have set my heart on it. Basically, this is a coming of age story. The main character, Blue, has been raised by an intellectual professor who is always on the move dragging her around the country to different jobs with different universities. Her mother died when she was very young, so her only deep relationship is with her father. And it is a very touching and loving relationship. I also like that it is structured around a syllabus for a Great Works of Literature class and woven into a murder mystery.
