Publisher's Summary

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
