No one does middle-age angst as well as Richard Russo. He gets it right, although I may quibble with some minor details. For example, I don't think Joy was quite the saint she was portrayed to be, and the problems in their marriage were as much her fault as they were Jack's. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the book and it's insights, especially about their parents, which continue to affect us, even in middle-age.
