APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
One disastrous BBQ upends the lives of three suburban Sydney families. Liane Moriarty (The Husband’s Secret, Big Little Lies) has a gift for mixing high drama and biting humour—and highlighting the absurd levels of investment and stress involved in modern domesticity. There are no heroes or villains in Truly Madly Guilty. But this entertaining pageturner seeks to explore the ripple effects of trauma and how and why bad things happen to good people.
In bestseller Moriarty's (Big Little Lies) latest, one small decision going to a barbecue reverberates through the lives of the six adults. Childhood friends Erika and Clementine couldn't be more different. Obsessive-compulsive Erika is married to Oliver; both are accountants, and they have no children. Clementine is a disorganized classical cellist with a husband, Sam, and two small children, Holly and Ruby. These two families are unexpectedly invited to a barbecue at the opulent home of Erika's neighbors: wealthy and vivacious Vid; his "smoking hot" wife, Tiffany; and their 10-year-old daughter, Dakota. During what is supposed to be an ordinary afternoon of food, drink, and lively conversation among people just beginning to become friends, a harrowing event deeply affects all these characters, forcing them to closely examine their choices, not only of that day but of their entire lives, and the effects of those choices. The novel holds back the meat of the story until the reader is about to burst with curiosity, but this technique strangely doesn't feel like torture; it gives readers a chance to consider the endless possibilities of every moment.
