For her debut as a satiric novelist, the Gloucester author chooses a setting with an easy par: the country club. Old-money grand dames, execs in midlife crisis, vegan-rebel teens—we’ve seen them before, and on the surface they’re as charmless as ever. But Hart’s elegant wit makes it a pleasure to spend time with her entitled, oblivious, and profoundly screwed-up characters. You’ll want to see them through the calamities that beset their manicured little world, and, at the end, cheer the debut of a literary pro. —J. L. Johnson
