They May Not Mean To, But They Do

Dynamics. Cathleen Schine presents three generations of a family and their unique yet universal interpersonal dynamics in her novel titled, They May Not Mean To, But They Do. You may either laugh or cry, depending on your age and your disposition to all that life can bring. I never expected to laugh so much while reading a novel that begins and ends with urine. The roles of parents and children, caretakers and caregivers, are tossed around, as well as the ways in which we either adapt or hold on when experiencing change. New Yorkers will understand not wanting to leave a rent controlled apartment. This funny and poignant novel offers a glimpse into family life that will resonate for many readers, and will delight even those who see nothing of themselves or their own families in this novel.
