The movement to root out toxic patriarchy in our culture has opened up a vital dialogue about the gray areas of truth, trust, and how we know what to believe. New novels by Jami Attenberg (All This Could Be Yours) and Susan Choi (Trust Exercise) take on the murky territory of manipulation, memory, community, and toxic men, exercising the form of the novel to demonstrate how complicated the conversation becomes–and how important it is to have it.
