"Often sidesplitting, mostly heartbreaking...[Tropper is] a more sincere, insightful version of Nick Hornby, that other master of male psyche." --USA Today
The death of Judd Foxman's father marks the first time that the entire Foxman clan has congregated in years. There is, however, one conspicuous absence: Judd's wife, Jen, whose affair with his radio- shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public. 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. Then Jen delivers the clincher: she's pregnant.
This Is Where I Leave You is Jonathan Tropper's (One Last Thing Before I Go) most accomplished work to date, and a riotously funny, emotionally raw novel about love, marriage, divorce, family, and the ties that bind-whether we like it or not.

Terrible future rom-com
Lacks a genuine plot. This is generic cookie cutter stuff they make into movies starring the Wilson brothers.
Really really good book
In addition to having a well thought out plot, this book is exceedingly hilarious. The author did a great job of including lots of humor and sarcasm. Loved it.
This is Where I Leave You
Overall I enjoyed the book. I related to the story having just lost my own mother and being with my siblings for almost a week. My siblings too have weird connections and hidden emotions about the past. Some aspects of the story were very funny. I laughed aloud while reading. However, there was just a bit too much emphasis on graphic sex for me. It seemed too casual and given too much emphasis.
