What Belongs to You has been called a masterpiece and the first great novel of 2016. I believe the unanimous praise is warranted. Greenwell’s long, bendy, viscous sentences perfectly evoke the human desire that is his focus. The story clusters around a handful of episodes, each pulling you in more deeply than the last. When every experience of love has caused pain, and lust seems the prudent course, what happens when love takes hold and what obligation does it carry? This is an exquisite book.
