Eleven Karens

Eleven Karens by Peter Lefcourt is fun book and an interesting way to write a novel. It is a fictional memoir about a nameless man and the eleven Karens he's met throughout his life. It starts in elementary school with the first Karen and goes to the final Karen in middle age. Each chapter or section of the book is about a different Karen and how that Karen enriched his life. There are also footnotes in each chapter, which I found interesting in a fiction book like this, about certain aspects a culture that he talks about in the chapters. This was a fun book, very enjoyable to read.
