This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper
This Is Where I Leave You

haskettedu, January 1, 2013

I had never heard of Mr. Tropper before I read this book. I was scrolling through staff picks on this site and came across it. The only thing that immediately jumped out at me was the title. It had a somber presence to it and I was unable to skip past it. It was the best decision that I have made all year. I read the book in one sitting, which I rarely do because I have a horrid case of bipolar disorder. This book was a calm in the storm and I couldn't rip my eyes from the pages. What kind of an author can make you tear up and laugh your rear end off in one chapter? A great author, that's who. As soon as I finished this book, I located Mr. Tropper's website and went on a bookstore hunt for the rest of his novels. I have read two more since and they are equally delectable. I cannot stress this enough: Buy it, check it out at the library, download it onto your Kobi...ANYTHING. Just start your new year off with amazing literature.
