From the TALK series, The Modern Family
Discussion led by Deborah Peterson.

The reviewers agree this light-hearted book by Elinor Lipman is funny, clever, and whimsical. The plot begins when Henry, a Manhattan lawyer, receives a call from his ex-wife who is about to be kicked out of her posh apartment by her two stepsons after the death of her third husband. The call brings Denise—his ex-wife–and her daughter, Thalia, back into the lonely bachelor's life. The ensuing plot twists and dialogue are worthy of Jane Austen according to both the Washington Post and the Chicago Tribune.
