You Should Have Known, Jean Hanff KorelitzRead about the other entries on the list.
You Should Have Known follows the story of Grace Reinhart Sachs, an Upper East Side therapist on the verge of releasing a book called You Should Have Known. The premise of Grace’s book is that women will construct elaborate excuses justifying the reasons behind a man’s shortcomings. We must stop doing this, is the very much married therapist’s message. Easy for her to say, with her doctor husband and her nice apartment. Then the mother of a schoolmate of her son is murdered and Grace’s doctor husband is suddenly unreachable. Yes, she should have known and readers will probably have seen it coming but it’s still definitely worth a read.
You Should Have Known is among Ellen Wehle's top seven reads for the seven deadly sins.
