I just finished Francine Prose's latest novel, "My New American Life."  I'm an admirer of Ms. Prose's work, but this was not among my favorites.  It has a fantastic set-up:  Albanian tries to make a life in the US while serving as nanny to a teenage boy and his father because mom decamped and suddenly left them all alone.  Some interesting stuff happens.  But I felt like it never got beyond that:  some interesting stuff happens.  #novels
