currently reading: My Latest Grievance by Elinor Lipman

I've noticed an odd cycle with me and Lipman: I like a book, I love a book, I don't like a book. This held true for her first 6 books, but I barely remember her last two, so perhaps the cycle is out. It made me wonder though, is she writing for more than one audience? Does she shift deliberately from happy endings to cynicism? Probably not. Maybe it's her health.

So far this one is a like, but that is subject to change without notice. It would make a good YA though: interesting teen narrator, ludicrous parents.
