When I first read about The Red Car by Marcy Dermansky, I thought it was a book about a woman who inherits a red car and goes on a road trip of self-discovery à la Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. A woman does inherit a red car in this book, but otherwise it’s not like what I expected. It’s a meandering story of a woman at a turning point in her life, doing a lot of self-reflection on the life she used to have. I really enjoyed it and gave it 4 stars on Goodreads. It’s a short book, so a quick read. And a diverse cast of supporting characters, which was nice to see.
