  1. The book does a decent job of explaining why she stays longer than she intended, and she is in contact with her kids throughout the year. But she never actually talks to Charles about the state of her marriage during this time, just writes him long, honest letters that she apparently never sends. So it's on her for not bringing up her concerns both before and during her absence. As a mom, I can't imagine leaving my kids for an entire year. The whole time I read the book, I kept thinking "Why didn't you ask your husband if you could go to a writer's retreat for a month or two, and get yourself into couple's therapy?"
  2. Yes, Lauren dated Maggie at one point, and then tried for awhile to date a cute male doctor but found it too vanilla. I think even when C and L together, there is room for plenty of conflict. Clearly, Kelsey has a problem with Liza dating the boss, I don't see Pauline totally going away, and they still need to deal with L's age externally at some point.
  3. I don't know much about the art world, but does buying the entire collections of promising artists and then locking them away make sense from an investment perspective? Wouldn't it be more practical to ensure that certain pieces were displayed or on loan to build excitement about the artist you just invested in, making their early pieces worth more?
  4. If a romance with Charles is what it takes for Liza to finally reveal her age at work, I'm all for it. In fact, if Empirical throws their support behind her, there's a great book in there that's actually perfect for the Millennial imprint. "My Life as a 26-year-old" or somesuch, in which Liza sympathizes with the plight of today's 20-somethings while dropping some feminist life knowledge. Based on all of the interest in her anonymous interview with the psychologist author, buyers of both age groups would eat that up. The show makes a huge deal about her career with Millennial being over if her age was known, but it's not like anyone bats an eye at 35-year-old editors selecting books for 15-year-olds, and she could always move to another part of the company now that her editor bona fides have been established. The contortions the show has to go through to keep the age storyline going (and Josh in the picture) are getting too pretzel-y for me.
