wishful wednesdayHai hai…di tanggal cantik ini, Wishful Wednesday tampil sedikit terlambat, maaf ya! =)

Minggu ini pilihan jatuh pada karya Jonathan Tropper, This is Where I Leave You.

Sedikit cuplikannya:

Often sidesplitting, mostly heartbreaking…[Tropper is] a more sincere, insightful version of Nick Hornby, that other master of male psyche.” –USA Today

The death of Judd Foxman’s father marks the first time that the entire Foxman clan has congregated in years. There is, however, one conspicuous absence: Judd’s wife, Jen, whose affair with his radio- shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public. Simultaneously mourning the demise of his father and his marriage, Judd joins his dysfunctional family as they reluctantly sit shiva-and spend seven days and nights under the same roof. The week quickly spins out of control as longstanding grudges resurface, secrets are revealed and old passions are reawakened. Then Jen delivers the clincher: she’s pregnant.

This Is Where I Leave You is Jonathan Tropper’s (One Last Thing Before I Go) most accomplished work to date, and a riotously funny, emotionally raw novel about love, marriage, divorce, family, and the ties that bind-whether we like it or not.

Love the cover!

Sedikit mengingatkan dengan Freedom nya Jonathan Franzen (dysfunctional family, raw humor etc), sepertinya ini buku yang pengen banget aku baca di tengah kekeringan buku bagus akhir-akhir ini. Mungkinkah ada yang mau kasih kado Natal? *uhuk*
