Daphne has received her mother’s 1968 yearbook (from her will) which was updated and maintained through the years by her mother. Her mother loved to attend class reunions and wrote comments about everyone who attended. Daphne did not see that it was something that she needed to hang on to so she put it into the recycle bin at her apartment building. A quirky neighbor who loves to scavenge the bin finds it and refuses to give it up. The neighbor sees herself as a documentary filmmaker and wants to use it as the basis of a film. Elinor Lipman is a good writer, I just found this book to have little substance with a plot that was not really something that I liked.
Good Riddance by Elinor Lipman will be available February 5, 2019 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. An egalley of this book was made available by the publisher in exchange for a honest review.
