The Deceptions, by Jill Bialosky

Staff Pick

“Something terrible has happened and I don’t know what to do.” While this frantic and arresting opening references only a singular “something,” the many events in the unnamed narrator's unraveling life suggest that much more is at stake, including loneliness after her son leaves for university, a growing resentment between her and her husband, and a fraught relationship with a fellow poet. Seeking escape in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Bialosky's protagonist parallels her own experiences with the events of the classical art and mythology on display, and in a richly sensual prose, the author both interrogates the relationship of desire and dominance and shows us the deep inner workings of a woman struggling to break free of the constraints that have long held her back.

At once a love letter to video games and a love story--of a kind--between two friends whose relationship spans over 30 years, Zevin's novel will charm gamers and non-gamers alike. The narrative focuses on Sadie and Sam, two lifelong video afficionados who met at a children’s hospital and are reunited once they are both in university.
