Improvement by Joan Silber

Staff Pick

Charles Finch referred to Silber as “our country’s own Alice Munro, " and I've been collecting her books for years on the assumption that when I finally get around to reading one, I’ll fall in love. Sure enough, I did love this precise, beautiful book. A novel in interconnected stories, Improvement is suffused with the quiet heartbreak of ordinary lives. Ranging from a single mother in Harlem to her aunt decades earlier on a farm in rural Turkey, Silber shows how even the smallest decisions we make can ripple outward to change someone else’s life, for better or worse.
