I'll Take It: A Novel

I'll Take It: A Novel - Paul Rudnick 1989, January 1

Such a weird book, and such a delight. The plot is just a hanger for the interactions between the mother and son, the sisters, the aunts and the nephew. I dearly love these sisters, and their crazy trip to take in the autumn foliage of Vermont.

All these years later I still adore it just as much. Joe's love for these three women is complete and accepting and generous. And the contrast between the middle-class suburban working women and the fantastically wealthy WASPs of Maine slays me.
