My Latest Grievance Summary

My Latest Grievance by Elinor Lipman

'When I was born in 1961, it was to instant campus celebrity.'

Frederica Hatch, the charming, precocious child of sweetly bonkers parents, has an idyllic if spoilt childhood in the grounds of the small, not very good, Dewing college. Everything is perfect - and then she discovers that her father has a secret. Worse still, his secret has a name: the glamorous and untrustworthy Laura Lee French, his estranged wife. And worst of all, Laura Lee's new job at Dewing is going to shatter the Hatches' little world.

"'Lipman dishes up her tart, witty tales without sugary sentiment... If you've not yet encountered Elinor Lipman, then you're in for a treat' Daily Mail; 'Hilarious...utterly addictive. Imagine, if you can, a cross between Philip Roth and Melissa Bank' Maggie O'Farrell, Independent on Sunday; 'A jewel... brings together the rare combination of intelligence, wit and wisdom' Carol Shields; 'The sort of novelist you want to tell your friends about... The wit and warmth of Lipman's small cast read like a particularly good episode of Friends crossed with ER, but the elegance of her prose and her wisdom concerning the human heart elevate it to serious literature' Amanda Craig, The Times"
