After two decades of regaling her audience with fictional characters, Elinor Lipman returns to the Booksmith with her most real character yet—herself. In I Can’t Complain, a collection of personal essays, Lipman covers the full range of human experience, ranging from the lighthearted to the profound.
In The View from Penthouse B, two sisters move in to one penthouse after some unexpected events. To make ends meet, Margot, recently divorced and made poor via a Ponzi scheme, and Gwen-Laura, recently widowed and still in mourning, become roommates with handsome, cupcake-baking Anthony. A story of friendship, loneliness, and sisterly love.
