about

Newlywed Alice Brody appears to have the perfect life. The one fly in the ointment is her mother's detestable boyfriend, Louie Scifo: champion of incredibly bad taste and a bona fide stalker. After Alice's mother cuts him loose, Louie's determination to win back her love casts Alice's whole family into disarray. So Alice embarks on a mission to rid her mother of Louie once and for all, in this rambunctious comedy of manners that is at once "dizzying, hilarious, authentic, and original" (Washington Post Book World).

Editorial Reviews

"Schine has a delicious sense of humor..She has given us delightfully quirky characters who deserve a permanent place in the pantheon of comic creations." -The New York Times"Cathleen Schine is a modern-day Jewish Jane Austen. She has written an elegantly comic novel." -People"Who else but Cathleen Schine can graft a delicate comedy of manners onto a slapstick farce with such unerring poise and wit? A novel that manages to be this funny is an achievement; one that also possesses grace and depth is a rare bird indeed." -Chicago Tribune"A very modern comedy that skewers family life with heart and wit." -New York magazine"Funny.joyful.wonderful." -The New York Times Book Review
