Rachel Cusk’s Saving Agnes centers on Agnes Day—subeditor, suburbanite, failure extraordinaire—who has discovered disconcerting gaps in her general understanding of the world. Terminally middle-class and incurably romantic, Agnes finds herself chronically confused by the most basic interactions. Life and love go on without her, but with a little facade she can pass herself off as a success. Beneath the fiction, however, the burden of truth becomes harder to bear.
