Big Swiss by Jen Beagin, a review by Jacquie Jordan.
If you are a fan of stories with many ups and downs, and a focus on mental health, then you will love this book. It is filled with unique characters who are all struggling with their own problems. The story is well paced and interspersed with written transcriptions from recordings the main character, Greta, receives and types. Over the course of the story Greta, and the reader, lose track of what was said in conversation and what was overheard in the recording. Which leads to some humorous interactions as well as the affair, which drives the story. While it was well written, there are many references to suicide and frank conversations about other topics like assault, sex, and mental illness.
3 out of 5 stars
