Sometimes boredom takes hold and builds into malaise, unease and anxiety. For the character at the heart of Ruth Galm’s debut novel — who goes by B. — the result is an overwhelming nausea she calls “the carsickness.” B. attempts to outrun the oppressive state, fueled in part by the expectations she faces as a young woman just turning 30 in 1967.
