Landline

by Rainbow Rowell

Published: 7/8/2014
by St. Martin’s Press
ISBN: 9781250049377

Landline explores the delicate balance women make between work and family, considering the tradeoffs and pain. Rowell has a special gift for offering incredible insights into ordinary life. Never heavy-handed, Rowell’s writing is delivered with humor and grace. I finish all of her books wanting to laugh and cry at the same time–they are that moving. Landline captured my heart.”

Quote
"I want to be happy. Like, seventy to eighty percent of the time. I want to be actively, thoughtfully happy."

— Rainbow Rowell, expressing my life ambition in her phenomenal new book, Landline.

Quote
"They could have Sherlocked and Watsoned it [together]. Or [he] could have figured it all out — he was the Sherlock and the Watson in their relationship."

Landline, Rainbow Rowell

If it’s not enough that Rainbow Rowell writes characters that are wonderfully real balls of awkwardness and neuroses and interests that don’t obviously go together; if it’s not enough that she writes romantic and family relationships that you can actually believe in (with a philosophy of love that isn’t only suitable for fiction), and which are woven into rich, complicated lives; if it’s not enough that her books have diverse casts along several axes; if it’s not enough that her books are funnier than eyeball tea; if it’s not enough that some of her characters meow; you might want to read them for the nods to assorted fandoms sprinkled throughout, even in books other than Fangirl (there were Star Trek and Harry Potter references in this one, too).

Quote
"How are you?” Delusional. Possibly certifiable. Weirdly happy. “Fine."

— Rainbow Rowell, Landline
