Molly Fox's Birthday - Deirdre Madden

Contemplative and sophisticated, Molly Fox's Birthday by Dierdre Madden is a novel that is slim in size despite its emotional weight. The unnamed narrator is a playwright spending time in the home of her friend Molly Fox, a famous actor. As the narrator goes about her day she reflects on her life: making breakfast and remembering her first meeting with Fox; as she visits the market, contemplating her friendship with a now very famous TV personality; and considering her future while she does the dishes. She ponders not only the nature of her work in the theater, but also her place in the world and role as daughter and sister. Molly Fox's Birthday is emotionally acute but devoid of melodrama, combining sympathy and insight with the perfect soupçon of humor.
