Having read a previous Lipman novel I was looking forward to another witty read but was disappointed. The entire premise seemed contrived and artificial. The characters weren't believable and the constant whine about how Jews were treated in the mid-90's was tiresome. I wouldn't recommend it.
One of the last "urbane novelists," Lipman is a wise, witty, charming and good-hearted writer who takes you into a world of characters you'd like as friends. In this, her latest novel, a young woman meets up with a family of inn-owners from Vermont who had rejected her own (Jewish) family as guests in the sixties. Lovely revenge comedy!
Once again, she made me laugh out loud more than once!
