Only a year ago Isabel Moore was married, the object of adoration of her ten-year-old daughter, and thought she knew everything about her wild, extravagant, beloved best friend, Josie. But in that one short year: her husband moved out and rented his own apartment; her daughter grew into a moody insomniac; and Josie—impulsive, funny, secretive Josie—was killed behind the wheel in a single-car accident. As Isabel tries to make sense of this shattering loss and unravel the months leading up to Josie’s death, she comes to understand the shifts, large and small, that can upend a friendship and an entire life. Heartbreaking and wryly funny, Days of Awe is a masterly exploration of marriage, motherhood, and the often surprising shape of new love.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Funny, mordant, and heartbreaking, Days of Awe is a marvel. With a deft touch, Lauren Fox manages to swoop from tenderness to absurdity in a single line, pulling her readers through a thicket of emotion without a stumble or a missed turn. I loved this novel.” Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“What’s wonderful about reading a novelist’s books in back-to-back sequence is that you witness the writer grow not gradually, but seemingly overnight…Fox’s latest novel, Days of Awe…treads on new territory: parenthood, loss, and death…Fox paints touching portraits of the bonds between mothers and daughters…Careful and nuanced.” New York Times Book Review
“As Fox deconstructs the myth of perfect womanhood, her humor and humanity remind us that love’s the only lifeboat through grief.” People
