This week, in your free time (ha!) crack open Gabrielle Zevin’s acclaimed The Hole We’re In.
Synopsis: An all-American family begins to unravel as seemingly small debts begin to amount, bringing to light the lengths to which people will go–and the depths to which they’ll sink–to ignore, hide from, or escape from it.
Why We Love It: This is a harrowing, sobering look at middle-class America, and in these recessionary times, it could be the most worthwhile book you pick up this season.
