9780142181713: This Is Where I Leave You

Poor Judd Foxman returns home early to find his wife in bed with his boss - in the act. He now faces the twin threats of both divorce and unemployment. His misery is compounded further with the sudden death of his father.

He is then asked to come and 'sit Shiva' for his newly deceased parent with his angry, screwed up and somewhat estranged brothers and sisters in his childhood home. It is there he must confront who he really is and - more importantly - who he can become.

Funny, moving, powerful and poignant. THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU is the fabulous follow up to HOW TO TALK TO A WIDOWER and Jonathan Tropper at his best.

Book Description Plume Books, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Media Tie In. 201 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Featuring cover artwork from the major motion picture starring Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, and Adam Driver 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 ( 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.
