Read full description of the books:
Right before listening to this, I finished Elinor Lipman's latest, On Turpentine Lane and knew that I needed to read more books by her. Thanks to a recommendation by my GR friend Debbie, I immediately found The Family Man on audio, and I think it's even better than Turpentine Lane. (Ironically, turpentine gets a mention in this book too -- the paint remover, not the road).
This is intelligent, progressive, and very, very funny. We have Henry Asher, a retired lawyer, divorced gay man, whose heart is big but in need of fulfillment. Then he comes across his long-lost stepdaughter Thalia, who moves in with him at the same time she embarks on a deal to pretend to be the girlfriend of a struggling actor. Henry also finds a love interest of his own, and as the cast of wonderful characters grows, they grow on you.
I think I'm on a quest to read everything Lipman had a hand in.
