The fourth novel by Curtis Sittenfeld, author of Prep and American Wife, a book loosely based on former First Lady Laurs Bush. Sittenfeld is a gifted storyteller. Her prose is often beautiful, a pleasure to read, and her pacing and plotting are strengths. She’s one of the few current authors whose books I actively seek out. This one is set in St. Louis, about twin sisters who are psychic. One rejects her ability and the other embraces it. The book begins with this second one predicting an earthquake for St. Louis, and she takes her prediction to the Today show and other media outlets.
