Need a funny read, but still a little substance?

This is where I leave you by Johnathan Tropper

This is where I leave you: A Novel
This is where I leave you: A Novel

While it’s beginnings sound somber—a family of adults attend the funeral of the their father and find that, even though the family was not religious, his dying wish was that the family come together and sit Shiva (mourning) for the requisite week. Thus begins this funny, and at times, touching novel as told by a wonderfully muddled 40-something guy trying to parse it all. It breezes along and you’ll be glad you went on the ride. (And yes, soon the movie is coming out.) 4 stars
