I picked this book up, because Jenny Offill is mentioned often by the editors of the NYT Book Review. Her style is unique, as she doesn't string her stories together with long paragraphs. Instead, she has short one- or two-line paragraphs that are grouped into short segments. Each of these short paragraphs reads almost like poetry to me. I found myself laughing out loud throughout the book. It's funny and clever and engaging. I will likely read other books by Jenny Offill. I think I read this book in about a day, so it grabbed me and didn't let me go until I was done with it.
