After losing her job Sylvia escapes New York for Italy, where she hooks up with handsome, well-off Henry. Off they go, rambling across Europe. They even take the scenic route when it comes to sharing their family histories, skirting inconvenient facts and selecting more picturesque elements. It’s good, droll fun, until painful truths are expressed and the full ramifications of their pasts emerge. Kirshenbaum has been called a “stand-up tragic”; she says, “If we can laugh, we can go on.” Similar authors are Lorrie Moore, Audrey Niffenegger, Dan Chaon and Rebecca Wells.
