Product Description

Book Description

Now a major motion picture set for release in October 2009

Product Description

It is 1967 and Larry Gopnik, a physics professor at a quiet Midwestern university, has just been informed by his wife Judith that she is leaving him since she has fallen in love with one of his more pompous colleagues.

His domestic woes accumulate: his unemployable brother Arthury is sleeping on the couch, his son Danny is shirking Hebrew school, and his daughter is filching money from his wallet in order to save up for a nose job. Also, a graduate student seems to be trying to bribe him for a passing grade while at the same time threatening to sue him for defamation, thus putting in jeopardy Larry's chances for tenure at the university.

As if all this wasn't enough, he is tormented by the sight of his beautiful next door neighbor sunbathing nude.

Larry's search for some kind of equilibrium is conveyed with the kind of humor, imagination and verbal wit that have made the work of Ethan and Joel Coen so distinctive. .

1.0 out of 5 stars Do Not Buy This "Book" 26 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
I cannot believe the authors had the audacity to call this a book, yet alone charge money for it. A complete and utter pile of rubbish. I can't even bring myself to put it in the charity bag as some poor soul will probably end up buying it for 10pence and it's overpriced even at that low price.

One misfortune after another propels the story through humor and farce into a lake of the deepest, darkest, blackest comedy.
