Have you resolved to read more in 2018? Then start your year off right with this gem. Jennifer Eagan (of the A Visit from the Goon Squad-–an absolute must if you haven’t already) paints the most stunning picture of New York and its seaport during World War II. The book centers around three characters—- a complex mobster, a disappearing father and a fearless young woman who trains to be the first female diver in the war efforts. This book is magical. It sucks you completely in and you’ll resurface clutching your chest.
