Marigold and Rose, by Louise Gluck

Staff Pick

"It was not a happy time. This was the first the twins understood that word, 'happy,' but they understood it because it was gone," Glück writes in one of the fewer-than 100 pages of her first work of fiction. Though new territory for the Nobel laureate whose claim to immortality is her poetry, the novel covers Glück's familiar themes of childhood and loss, along with her signature profound musings on existence, language, and the toll of everyday life; she is no less a master of craft here, than in acclaimed collections such as The Wild Iris and The Triumph of Achilles.
