Elinor Lipman's latest novel, The View from Penthouse B, tells the story of a season in the life of recently widowed Gwen-Laura, now living with her sister Margot. Their household grows to include Anthony, a young, hip gay man and occasionally his sister, not to mention Margot's ex-husband, a philandering gynecologist newly released from prison. They become Gwen's cheering section as she emerges from mourning and ventures back into the dating scene. This is vintage Lipman, a pure pleasure to read.
I Can't Complain is Elinor Lipmans' debut essay collection. Here are essays on her mother, her husband, her son, on writing and religion. She brings her trademark wit, wry irony, and sharp eye to her own experience, and in the process illuminates our own.
