Much More Than A Deft Social Commentary...
Gripping and unpredictable, this book blew me away. Isn't WASP-dom a tired subject? Not in this sharp, funny yet elegaic account of an old world family struggling with modern life. The characters are deeply memorable, their inner lives complex yet all too real. Amazing. The best novel i've read this year.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is a lovely lyrical and perceptive book, rich with local color and larger significance. It shrewdly updates the comedy of manners and uses the anthropological technique of that genre to canny ends.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
