A staple in the literary scene for over forty years, Baumbach’s latest novel, Dreams of Molly, is a wonderful addition to his oeuvre. A love story as only Baumbach can write, it is filled with the longings and lingerings, sex and deprivation, humor and heartache, as well as the New York nuances that have driven Baumbach’s fiction from the start. As in past Baumbach novels, Dreams of Molly creates a life invented in dreams.
“It’s comic, almost zany in tone, with a plot that is suspenseful even as it resists interpretation; reading it feels a bit like watching a David Lynch film.” —The New York Observer
“A knock at the door of memory, and everything answers, all the more we didn’t know we really did want to know. A beautiful book.” —Joseph McElroy
