My Phantoms by Gwendoline Riley

Staff Pick

If you suffer from parenting your parents, this book is for you. Following Bridget--who has a man-child father and an overbearing mother--Riley writes with a wit that lets the prose fairly float, even as she creates scenes that make readers feel they are right there when, for instance, Bridget's father explains why his marriage to her mother had to end. The book will make you want to jump into the pages and tell Bridget, “Don’t worry--my parents are just as bad.”
