Fleishman is in Trouble is the kind of book that makes a mockery of the 5 star rating system Here is a novel that is eual parts highly relatable and alienating enjoyable and aggravating and great bookclub fodder discuss for hours This book wants you to sympathize with millionaire New Yorkers people whose lifestyle is totally out of reach for most and to see them as people with feelings and real struggles but not with the even wealthier New Yorkers who it casts as villains and over privileged jerks It tries so hard to subvert narratives that it ends up doubling back on itself That was what I knew for sure that this was the only way to get someone to listen to a woman to tell her story through a man Trojan horse yourself into a man and people would give a shit about you So this novel is a Trojan horse ostensibly about the recently separated Toby Fleishman and his adventures in dating but really about his ball busting wife Rachel in absentia and his old friend Libby who functions as both a preternaturally omniscient Nick Carraway type narrator and as an author stand in Cleverly Toby is cast in the traditionally feminine role of being the secondary earner in his marriage despite his six figure hepatologist s salary which pales in comparison to Rachel s career as a celebrity agent Meanwhile Rachel s narrative tackles that old chestnut women are expected to

right are so crammed in together there s no space for anything to breathe and the novel densifies under their weightIt s also kind of repetitious making the same contentions in slightly different flavours over and over Libby has a long diatribe towards the end which while very much on point seems like a Brodesser Akner essay on gender roles shoehorned in there just to bludgeon the reader one last timeThe Trojan horse manoeuvre is inspired but it fails in execution because 80% of the novel is spent describing the horse ie Toby s story The horse is not the point I was rather bored by the horse and wanted much much of Rachel Maybe inadvertently the Trojan horse here is not a man s story but rich people s stories Imagine a novel skewering gender roles marriage and midlife but it s about a divorced parent on the poverty line relying on welfare and child support payments that never ever arrive working around the clock to provide for their children When that character experiences a

Recently separated Toby Fleishman is suddenly somehow and at age forty one short as ever surrounded by women who want him women who are self actualized women who are smart and interesting women who don't mind his height women who are eager to take him for a test drive with just the swipe of an app Toby doesn't mind being used in this way; it's a welcome change from the thirteen years he spent as a married man the thirteen ye. This is indeed a very readable novel with really interesting characters There are a lot of people in their early forties having mid life crises in this novel And I was really interested in those crises as they are very interesting The prose is so dense almost too dense at times This is one of those novels where there is so much story to tell and I wanted to know all of that story but I uestion the structure There is a narrative device of a third party narrator that honestly drove me to distraction I kept thinking why is she telling us this story I just wanted Toby and Rachel to tell their story That said this book is going to do very well and it should because it is wickedly smart and angry and it absolutely skewers a certain social set while also saying necessary things about success and gender and marriage and the ways women are punished for being ambitious and complicated and human The ending is wonderful As in the last line I liked that a lot Great summer book I hope people read it
