JUNE Book of the month: This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper

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 (One Last Thing Before I Go) 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.

    Another fun meetup. ~ Shannon, sorry, I forgot to pay! Will pay up next time! ~ I was so intrigued by that 'beating heart' story I revealed my wacky unicorn tale ... It will take sometime to FIND that SLR photo, but for sure I will. It's very eerie: and in many ways I still don't BELIEVE it ... But it's like that 'beating heart' ~ unlikely, implausible, unbelievable ~ but clearly the story resonants as TRUE. ~ More later ... the hunt begins ...

    Hello, everyone. I've just joined the group. I'm an avid reader, though I shockingly haven't had much time for it lately. I'm really looking forward to meeting folks and talking about books.
