Sunday I read The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters Elisabeth Robinson's epistolary novel about two sisters, one of whom is a struggling movie producer, and the other who has just been diagnosed with leukemia. The book follows about a year and a half in the life of Olivia as she tries to spend time with her sister and produce a movie based on Don Quixote. I liked the format a lot and while the prose isn't anything special, the story moves quickly and is genuinely moving in parts. There are some nice parallels that come through with the sisters and Don Quixote that add some depth to what could have easily been just another weepy chick book.
