This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper

June 4, 2015

The death of Judd Foxman's father marks the first time that the entire Foxman clan has congregated in years. Simultaneously mourning the demise of his father and his marriage, Judd joins his dysfunctional family as they reluctantly sit shiva-and spend seven days and nights under the same roof. The week quickly spins out of control as longstanding grudges resurface, secrets are revealed and old passions are reawakened.  A riotously funny, emotionally raw novel about love, marriage, divorce, family, and the ties that bind-whether we like it or not. The 2014 film adaptation stars Jason Bateman, Tina Fey Jane Fonda, and Adam Driver.
