Elinor Lipman - On Turpentine Lane

Upcoming Event
Friday, February 17, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Lipman’s eleventh novel is a classic romantic comedy in the vein of Then She Found Me, her second book, which was adapted for the 2008 film. The narrative follows thirty-two year old Faith Frankel, a woman as earnest and open as her name suggests, through a slightly unsettled period of readjustment in her hometown. Waiting for her fiancé to finish his crowdfunded cross-country walk, Faith writes institutional thank-you letters, deals with her mother, and buys a house that comes with some odd leftovers in the attic. Feeling as if her real life is in hiatus, Faith regains a sense of purpose through a budding friendship with a colleague.
