Fleishman Is In Trouble by Taffy Brodesser-Akner

Fleishman Is In Trouble is a hit novel published June 2019. Some are calling it the book of the summer.

Rave reviews all round.

I made it about a quarter of the way through before giving up.

The sales pitch is that she’s a modern, female version of Philip Roth or John Updike. That could be true. It’s well written. Smart.

But for me the book comes on too strong. A “Tinder-age Portnoy’s Complaint“.

Guardian review – Fleishman Is in Trouble by Taffy Brodesser-Akner review – smart, funny story of love and sex
