You Never Get it Back, by Cara Blue Adams

Staff Pick

Adams's award-winning debut collection is a series of interconnected vignettes that paint a lush portrait of a young woman in her young adulthood. Kate Bishop is knowledgeable enough about the world, but still carefully treading the waters of love, friendship, and loss. As she navigates these different moments in her life, they seem to leave her with more questions than answers, but Adams's deft prose sheds light in the cracks and fissures of seemingly banal moments, elevating the beauty of the ordinary.
