I wasn't looking forward to reading this for book club. But I am so glad I did! It was a different perspective for me; that of a male, middle aged academic. There wasn't much plot maybe but the dialogue (in quotations and out) was superb. It was witty with such clever observations about people. And it was hilarious!
