"Often sidesplitting, mostly heartbreaking...[Tropper is] a
more sincere, insightful version of Nick Hornby, that other master
of male psyche." --USA Today
The death of Judd Foxman's father marks the first time that the
entire Foxman clan has congregated in years. There is, however, one
conspicuous absence: Judd's wife, Jen, whose affair with his radio-
shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public.
Simultaneously mourning the demise of his father and his marriage,
Judd joins his dysfunctional family as they reluctantly sit
shiva-and spend seven days and nights under the same roof. The week
quickly spins out of control as longstanding grudges resurface,
secrets are revealed and old passions are reawakened. Then Jen
delivers the clincher: she's pregnant.
This Is Where I Leave You is Jonathan Tropper's most
accomplished work to date, and a riotously funny, emotionally raw
novel about love, marriage, divorce, family, and the ties that
bind-whether we like it or not.
