“The Comedown” Book Review

Frumkin’s novel consists of connected short stories which tell the story of a family impacted by the drug world. I love the idea of getting more info about specific events through the lens of different characters, but each chapter just left me plain confused. It was hard for me to remember which character was which and how they were all related (although I suppose this could be more my fault than the author’s.) Aside from the confusion (there were constant time jumps too!), I was also turned off by the repetitiveness of each story and the overabundance of details about side characters that didn’t add anything to the story. This was just really disappointing.
