I always learn something new when I pick up a Chris Bohjalian book.
In the case of his latest, “Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands” it was the term “bitchcakes.”
I found it endearing that Bohjalian thanked his teenage daughter Grace in his author’s note, as when I read the passage in which the 17-year-old protagonist talks about “going bitchcakes” I immediately thought to myself, “He either has spent a lot of time with his teenager or he sent her into the world of homeless teens for some undercover intel.”
