Florence Gordon

Funny. I don’t think Brian Morton could have chosen any title other than Florence Gordon for his new novel, since it is all about her. This seventy-five year old knows her own mind, and speaks bluntly to any listener within earshot, filtering not a single syllable out of tact. Florence Gordon is an academic and an icon among feminists. She does not suffer fools gladly. I laughed often at her acerbic dialogue. I can’t recall another novel with such a strong female protagonist of this age. Morton offers readers deep understanding about aspects of human behavior and the wisdom of those who have lived life.
