Alexandra Jacobs Reviews Roiphe

Alexandra Jacobs reviews Katie Roiphe’s latest book, Uncommon Arrangements, in the Observer.

Uncommon Arrangments is colorful, fragrant, aural—rich with the clink of teacups and the “languid, ineffectual strokes” as Murry paints a cottage (“Get it done,” growls house guest Lawrence. Can you imagine?). It’s kind of like an Edward Gorey cartoon come to life.

While the books sounds fine (FBLA is rather over the Edwardians), Jacobs’ writing is fun to read–refreshing, accurate and tart.
