Throughout the ten stories in You Think It, I?ll Say It, Sittenfeld upends assumptions about class, relationships, and gender roles in a nation that feels both adrift and viscerally divided. In ?The World Has Many Butterflies,? married acquaintances play a strangely intimate game with devastating consequences. In ?Vox Clamantis in Deserto,? a shy Ivy League student learns the truth about a classmate?s seemingly enviable life. In ?A Regular Couple,? a high-powered lawyer honeymooning with her husband is caught off guard by the appearance of the girl who tormented her in high school. And in ?The Prairie Wife,? a suburban mother of two fantasizes about the downfall of an old friend whose wholesome lifestyle-brand empire may or may not be built on a lie.With moving insight and uncanny precision, Curtis Sittenfeld pinpoints the questionable decisions, missed connections, and sometimes extraordinary coincidences that make up a life. Indeed, she writes what we?re all thinking?if only we could express it with the wit of a master satirist, the storytelling gifts of an old-fashioned raconteur, and the vision of an American original.
