Book Review: Modern Lovers by Emma Straub


Emma Straub, the New York Times Best Selling author of the Vacationers, has done it again with her latest  title, Modern Lovers.

This New York Times Bestseller is set in a neighborhood just outside NYC,  introducing us to four friends who had played together in a fairly successful rock band during college.  Now in their seemingly late forties, we learn how their life paths have formed and perhaps disappointed several of them.

At the same time, we meet some of their children who are just about to encounter these idyllic times of youth with mixed feelings of hope and confusion.

Modern Lovers on the surface is about young love and love that has matured over time.  But at its core it’s about finding out who you really are in life and staying true to your dreams (if you are lucky enough to know what they are).
