The Art of Forgetting
By Camille Noe Pagan
(Dutton Adult, $26)
Marissa Rogers had a plum job in New York City, a rock of a boyfriend and her best friend, Julia, just a phone call away. But when Julia is hit by a cab and suffers a brain injury, everything changes. As Julia struggles to regain her memory, she becomes fixated on things — including her desire to rehash a college love triangle Marissa had long since tried to forget. Camille Noe Pagan’s debut novel is a powerful one about friendship, love and facing the past when it slips into the present.
