Liane Moriarty’s debut novel is a remarkably accomplished, near-perfect exploration of family dynamics in contemporary Australia. Witty and wise, with excellent pacing and an inventive structure, it exemplifies the genre of contemporary women’s fiction. And after reading Three Wishes, I was impressed with how well she’s living up to her initial promise: her fifth and sixth novels, The Husband’s Secret and Big Little Lies, are both terrific novels as well, not something you can say about most novelists’ oeuvres especially given the rate at which she’s writing these. Looking forward to devouring the three other novels she’s written to date, as well as those still to come.
