Emily Gould's six favorite books

Emily Gould is the author of the 2010 memoir And the Heart Says Whatever and the newly released debut novel, Friendship.

One of her six best books, as shared at The Week magazine:
Lee and Elaine by Ann Rower

An art professor ends a long relationship and retreats to a friend's beach house, where she obsesses over the legacies of Willem de Kooning's and Jackson Pollock's wives. Rower's wide-ranging imagination and translucent, funny, and intelligent style transforms ordinary life into a series of surprises.
