A side-splitting and heartbreaking tale, now a major Hollywood movie starring Tina Fey, Connie Britton, and Jason Bateman.
Poor Judd Foxman returns home early to find his wife in bed with his boss - in the act. He now faces the twin threats of both divorce and unemployment. His misery is compounded further with the sudden death of his father.
He is then asked to come and 'sit Shiva' for his newly deceased parent with his angry, screwed-up, and somewhat estranged brothers and sisters in his childhood home. It is there he must confront who he really is and - more importantly - who he can become.
Funny, moving, powerful and poignant, This Is Where I Leave You is the fabulous follow-up to How to Talk to a Widower and Jonathan Tropper at his best. Read by Ramon de Ocampo

I have already recommended 'This is Where I Leave You' to many of my friends as I found it to be extremely funny and well written.
I loved the interaction between the family members.
I couldn't fault Ramon de Ocampo's depiction of any of the characters. He was the perfect narrator.
This book had me howling with laughter.
It isn't often I say this, but I will probably listen to this book again. I am sure it will make me laugh just as much as it did at my first listen.

yes, this book for me contains the prefect balance between understanding the complecities of loss through the medium of humor
when judd find the photo of his mother that had been so well cared for by his father and he appricated the depth of love felt between them both
i like the scene where the brothers cuase chaos at the synagogue
this book felt like an accurate account of a modern day family with a sprinkling of poetic licence for that little add of humourous favouring
