Hilarious and addictive. San Francisco Chronicle


Meet Florence Gordon, a blunt, brilliant feminist. At seventy-five, Florence wants to be left alone to write her memoir and shape her legacy. But when her son and his family come to visit, they embroil Florence in their dramas, threatening her coveted solitude. Marked with searing wit, sophisticated intelligence, and a tender respect for humanity, Florence Gordonis cast with a constellation of unforgettable characters. Chief among them is Florence herself, who can humble fools with a single barbed line, but who eventually finds that there are some realities even she cannot outwit.

It s such a cliche to say a book makes you laugh and cry, but this one does, in the deftest way. Emily Gould, Paste

Deliciously sharp and deeply sympathetic . . . a truly gifted novelist. Adam Kirsch, Tablet
