Description



About the Book



Original publication and copyright date: 2009.



Book Synopsis



A riotously funny, emotionally raw New York Times bestselling novel about love, marriage, divorce, family, and the ties that bind--whether we like it or not.

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...

"Often sidesplitting, mostly heartbreaking...[Tropper is] a more sincere, insightful version of Nick Hornby, that other master of male psyche."--USA Today

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JASON BATEMAN, TINA FEY, JANE FONDA, AND ADAM DRIVER

Honestly hated this book with a passion. The description on the back tells you just about everything you need to know. The rest of the book is filled with pointless s*x scenes and descriptions of falling in love with women's body parts. I only kept reading because I was sure that couldn't be all there was to the book.
