You said, what I tried to say in my post. Anita Shreve writes about real things that afflict people in their everyday life. But she writes with such feeling, its like you are living it with the person.
Stephanie wrote:The main thoughts I came away from Body Surfing with (about style, anyway) were a sense of realism, perspective and life lessons. I think we can relate to the narration because it could be any of us.

I'm so glad this book discussion is here - I just love Anita Shreve's books.
My first one was 'The Last Time They Met'.
Last summer I listened to all her books on my I Pod while gardening.
I still have the recording so I can follow this discussion along with you.
