connection & meaning

Further to what I said earlier, Open House is a book with considerable depth. Sure, you can read it as a predictable superficial story of woman-gets-dumped-by-long-time-partner-but-finds-self, or you can read an analysis of how she comes to understand the importance of human connection in her life. I reckon there's lots of quite profound thruths in there, including reflections on the variety of human responses to the question of what is the role of relationships in the world. Also, a lot of the books content addresses the dichotomy between what we say and what we mean.
