Call #: Fiction Lipma.E

Not all lead characters in Elinor Lipman novels are charming, some you want to strangle, but the way in the which they complicate their lives makes for a good time. Daphne, recently divorced, is floundering. She decides to clean out her apartment of that which does not give her joy, including the small town high school yearbook of the class of 1968 that her mother, the yearbook sponsor, penciled full of snarky comments, and left particularly to Daphne in her will. Her nosy neighbor finds it in recycling, claims it, and pushes Daphne to accompany her to the 50th class reunion in order for the neighbor to do research for a documentary she’s decided to make about the class of 1968. Secrets are revealed, leading Daphne to question her childhood and try everything in her power to stop the documentary. Romance also ensues. Fun.
