For Publishers Weekly they named ten top books for Twentysomethings, including:
Alice in Bed by Cathleen SchineRead about the other entries on the list.
Alice is a college student whose body fails her, landing her in a hospital for a year as doctors, nurses, and a bizarrely distracted mother swirl around her. Her feelings of helplessness and confusion, combined with some weird hallucinations and paranoid fantasies, are like youth writ large; Alice is literally paralyzed, a stand-in for young people who feel metaphorically so. And she gets through it the way so many people do -- by improvising.
