On Turpentine Lane

Sitcom. There’s something to be said for reading a book when the time and setting for is optimal. To prepare yourself for Elinor Lipman’s novel titled, On Turpentine Lane, choose a weekend, the beach or a vacation flight as the best time and setting. This romantic situation comedy could fall flat if read on the way to and from work, for example, or just before falling asleep. If you’re truly in vacation mode, chances are you’ll laugh as much as I did as protagonist Faith Frankel finds a house on Turpentine Lane, and then finds love. Lipman presents an interesting cast of characters, and situations that are close to laugh-out-loud funny. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase On Turpentine Lane from
