The Family Man
by Elinor Lipman
Elinor Lipman is a terrific writer of comedy and character. The Family Man centers upon Henry Archer, a retired New York City attorney, who is quite wealthy and quite lonely. By a quirk of fate, he is reunited with his former step-daughter Thalia. Thalia is a free-spirit actress trying for a break and she and Henry re-bond in hilarious circumstances. This is a heart-warming, well-written and witty tale with characters you will love.
