Trust Exercise by Susan Choi


Choi’s novel begins with Sarah and David’s love affair. The writing is as grand as their teenage emotions – maybe even more so because they attend a dramatic arts high school.  Then half way through the book the narrator changes from Sarah to Karen, who was only a peripheral character in the first half. Karen draws attention to Sarah’s storytelling and her facts. As Karen exposes the duality of it all, she plots to expose and redeem her truth. This experimental novel is about writing, relationships, perspective, and presence.
