“This Is Where I Leave You”

This Is Where I Leave YouEverything is wrong, random, and somehow still funny in the Foxman family. In Jonathan Tropper’s new novel, “This Is Where I Leave You,” Judd Foxman is unemployed after witnessing his wife’s infidelity with his boss. He is invited back home to sit shiva with the rest of his clan—what the New York Times calls “a darkly entertaining bunch of dysfunctional relatives”—in the aftermath of his father’s death. Publishers Weekly says, “Tropper strikes an excellent balance between the family history and its present-day fallout, proving his ability to create touchingly human characters and a deliciously page-turning story.” Characters are real and accessible, and the writing is heartfelt yet witty; readers will have no choice but to relate to the Foxman family grievances.
