Another Lipman wonder!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Pursuit of Alice Thrift (Paperback)Elinor Lipman has excelled with this one. For her band of faithful readers this is the funniest and poignant so far.
The heroine Alice Thrift is a doctor in training and somewhat lacking in social skills and bedside manner. Two friends come to her rescue. The dialogue is pure comedy reflecting life. Ms Lipman's talent for capturing ordinary conversations is amazing.
I loved this book as I did Isobel's Bed.
