Elinor Lipman Has a New Book Out!
A number of years ago, when I was still doing Readers' Advisory Workshops, I stumbled on Elinor Lipman's works and fell in love. My first read was The Inn at Lake Devine, which I shared with my audience and I've been hooked ever since.
Entertainment Weekly, my source of all things wonderful, gave an 'A' review The Family Man (2009), a "sparkling, sprightly comedy". Here's the blurb from Ms. Lipman's website, "A hysterical phone call from Henry Archer's ex-wife and a familiar face in a photograph upend his well-ordered life and bring him back into contact with the child he adored, a short-term stepdaughter from a misbegotten marriage long ago." Comedy-of-manners, social comedy, whatever you want to call it, Elinor Lipman writes engaging stories with people you wish were your friends.
I put The Family Man on reserve at the library! Can't wait!
