really liked it
Read in September, 2009

This could be one of my favorite Lipman books because of her masterful handling of very human characters whose kindness and wryness help them deal with their perceived flaws and live a good life. Typical of her novels, the plot lines are often unexpected and filled with humor. The dialogue sometimes reads more like a screenplay as it often does in Lipman's writing, but I don't find it an obstacle. I still have several books to go on my Lipman Fall Tour...lucky me.
