“A Friend of the Family”

This is going to be one of the best reads of 2010.  I say this confidently, knowing it’s only March.  Trust me, drop everything and grab Lauren Grodstein’s A Friend of the Family.

Product Details

Gosh, I don’t want to spoil anything for you – there are two mysteries in this book filled with dark foreboding.  I will say it’s a tragedy about a man brought down by his own flaws.  Grodstein’s elegant, measured prose somehow gallops along; I read this book in one five-hour sitting.  I’ll bet a dollar this will be made into a movie, and most likely a great one.
