In Kris Radish’s novel The Sunday List of Dreams, Connie Nixon is a suburban divorcée who retires early from her nursing job so she can tackle her list of previously unattainable goals — like cleaning out the garage, going to confession, and reuniting with her estranged daughter, Jessica (in that order). Nixon learns her lost child went off and created a wish list of her own — to satisfy every unfulfilled American woman with her burgeoning sex-toy business! Connie’s rediscovery — of her daughter, of herself, of good nookie — feels like a throwback to the sexual revolution, and Radish’s empowerment message seems limited to repressed boomers. C+
