Sometimes I want to grab an author by the cheeks and ask them one question. “Where have you been all my life?” Honestly, authors like Jonathan Tropper only serve to further motivate my endless quest to read every book in existence.
Mother Hillary is a psychiatrist and the bestselling author of Cradle and All: A Mother's Guide to Enlightened Parenting, now in its 25th edition. Sister Wendy is stuck in a less than satisfying marriage to a financial wizard, neglecting her children as her husband neglects her. Older brother martyred Paul was forced to give up a star career in baseball after a childhood injury and stays home to be the good son to work for the family business. Younger brother Phil flits from experience to experience, not all positive.
Yet Judd is the most interesting, intense character of the entire clan. After finding his wife in bed with his boss, Judd loses everything he spent the last 15 years building; his marriage, his job, his home and his belief in himself. Rudderless, he returns home to figure out what to do next.
However spending seven days locked in with the Foxman clan might finally do him in.
Brutally honest, Jonathan writes the things the rest of us think. Wickedly, bluntly funny, you’ll simultaneously cringe and chuckle.
