Our Book of the Week is Weather by Jenny Offill. Very funny on top of an underlying anxiety, Offill's new novel is a record of the burdens and ironies of contemporary urban life — motherhood, sisterhood, wifehood, workerhood — exemplified in Lizzie's endless surges of underachievement and misdirection.
