This book is my favourite of the last decade. It is a truly insightful portrayal of North American family life replete with gut-wrenching commentary on family disfunction, and mental health. This book covers everything about our lives and our times - self-help, elder care, sexuality, drugs, food culture, Eastern Europe, money etc... It's a classic and didn't need Ms. Winfrey book club to be so and that's what makes me like it even more.
