Have you been following along with the #IndigoBookClub? For the month of April, the book pick is the much buzzed about novel The Nest by Cynthia D’Apprix Sweeney. Can we take a moment to look at how gorgeous the cover is? I just finished reading this book and I enjoyed it. It was funny, frustrating, sad and addictive. Read more below.
On a wintry afternoon in New York City, Melody, Beatrice and Jack Plumb gather to confront their charismatic and reckless older brother, Leo, who has just been released from rehab. Leo’s bad behavior before entering rehab, culminating in a car crash while under the influence, a nineteen-year-old waitress beside him, has left the Plumbs’ joint trust fund “The Nest,” as they’ve taken to calling it, endangered. All four siblings, at very different places in their lives, believe that this money will solve a host of self-inflicted problems and their consequences.
Tender, funny and deftly written, The Nest explores what money does to relationships, what happens to our ambitions over the course of our lives, and the fraught but unbreakable ties we have with our families.
