From bestselling author Patrick deWitt, a brilliant and darkly comic novel about a wealthy widow and her adult son who flee New York for Paris in the wake of scandal and financial disintegration.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I just loved this book! I listened via audiobook which was narrated by Lorna Raver which I thoroughly enjoyed. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a hilarious, light-hearted, fun, and thought-provoking read.
I loved the author, Patrick deWitt’s writing style. The tone, setting, character development, and plot were all charming and insightful. It had notes of satire which were sassy and provocative. I enjoyed the theme of romance with underlying philosophical facts about life. It read like I was overhearing juicy gossip being told among ladies in the park and I loved every moment of it.
