The plot of a purloined novel, “The Pirate Lover,” runs parallel to the lives of Neave and Lilly, two sisters in working-class Massachusetts. An unusual narrative device — Lilly’s sections are told from beyond the grave — helps keep the story interesting, and Pywell clearly has fun riffing on the romance genre’s tropes and overstuffed language.
