Atmospheric Disturbances

NYTBR's lead review this week is for Atmospheric Disturbances, a novel that begins "Last December a woman entered my apartment who looked exactly like my wife." It gets a rave, but I was intrigued that the reviewer (an acquaintance) didn't mention the disorder that serves as the inspiration, Capgras Delusion, which I've been obsessed with lately, and am a little disappointed to discover has now been fictionalized by someone else before I could get to it.

Yup, I was also going to post about The Echo Maker - fantastic book.

What about when you see someone who reminds you of old friends, so you decide to become friends with him, as if that will replace the old one?
