What really invigorates this novel, though, is the way it alternates between Claire's chapters and chapters narrated by Lola, her year-old Filipino nanny.
I was worried early on that Lola would be a Southeast Asian version of the Magical Negro, who exists merely to help some self-absorbed white person reach enlightenment. But she's entirely her own wonderful, troubled character, and her relationship with Claire remains complex and unresolved.
