Mak­ing your own rules has never looked, or sounded, so good. EDITOR’S POV In Peter Ni­chols’ The Rocks (a.k.a. this sum­mer’s big­gest read), we meet Lulu, a brazen white-haired ho­tel owner liv­ing on the coast of Mal­lorca, Spain, who is ob­sessed with per­fec­tion. Spoiler: It doesn’t end well for her. But, as Ni­chols re­veals, it’s be­cause per­fec­tion lies in the eye of the be­holder. Ac­tress Melissa McCarthy would agree. In place of per­fec­tion, she (and us, BTW) would like to cham­pion a new kind of nor­mal—the kind of nor­mal that ends well.
