I'm glad I was asked to do a review of The Lucky Ones by the British novelist Rachel Cusk because I'm completely unfamiliar with her writing. She won the Whitbread First Novel Award for Saving Agnes and was named one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists of the Decade.

It's amazing that there are people who claim to love or like the month of April. "What do you like about it?" I ask, truly mystified. "The nice weather," someone invariably says. "It's warm," pipes up another.

Do these people walk around the Boston area with blinders on or what? When have we had nice, warm weather in April? Oh yeah, I remember. Last year on April 23rd, it was sunny and the temperature got up to 62 degrees. I guess I forgot.
