  • The Pursuit of Alice Thrift by Elinor Lipman

    Rating: ****

    Strangely compelling novel. I had read a Lipman book before, but wasn't overly impressed. She appears to deal with a class of people who are mature, professional, and settled. So not chick lit-ish, in other words. Alice Thrift was quirky and unpredictable for a number of reasons. For one, Alice is such a dark horse. She's so innocent, but not sweet, clever, but not wise. The side characters are odd, but mostly endearing.
