Wife, mother, rabbi and sometime moral voice of the nation, everyone wants to be with her at her older sons glorious February wedding. Until Leo becomes a bolter and the heyday of the Rubin family begins to unravel . . . As intelligent as it is funny. A beautifully observed literary comedy as well as a painfully accurate description of one big old family mess Observer Fast-paced and engaging.
