The best novels take you in and introduce you to people who, pleasantly or otherwise, intrude on your thoughts, who live alongside you, who inform your day-to-day experience. Long after you’ve finished reading it, you’re still in. Life is now a bit different. A bit deeper. Good Luck and a Benevolent God is that kind of novel. Sparingly, economically, and skillfully written, Good Luck acquaints you with Mandy Flanagan, a twentieth-century Becky Sharp, whose misalliances and misadventures are as entertaining as they are elegiac. Good Luck stays with you. Highly recommended.
