bookshelves: booksale-finds
Read in July, 2008

I was surprised that this book was so good and I can even say that Elinor Lipman is a bit of a discovery for me. The edition that I have is from one of my library booksale forays into the "oversize paperback" section (which evolved from the slightly higher brow "trade paperback" section, which I LOVED!) The cover art and blurb are chick-littish. I'm not a snob, but I'm not usually attracted by ultra-modern girly stuff. However, something about it seemed Bridget Jones-ey or Nanny Diary-ish to me, and I was right! (I later found out that there is a film of this movie, but the movie plot seems really over the top--the book is very real and funny at the same time.) Anyway, the mark of a good book for me is if I remember stuff about the plot and characters several weeks (or years) after reading it--and I do! Bravo, Elinor!
