In Laidlaw's new novel, an odd menage a trois takes a wordy journey of late adolescent self-discovery. At a party, Carla introduces Bryce to Sylvia, her friend from high school. Bryce is immediately smitten, even though Carla already harbors smouldering passions for Sylvia. The car of the title is given to Bryce by Sylvia's grandmother, and his difficulties in handling it parallel, in heavy-handed metaphor, his difficulties with brilliant but troubled Sylvia. Laidlaw ( Three Nights in the Heart of the Earth , LJ 1/88) is a fluid, descriptive novelist whose dialog is snappy and believable, but he breaks no new ground here. Recommended with some reservations for fans of literate relationship novels.
