My Latest Grievance

Born and raised in a college dorm and chafing under the care of the most annoyingly evenhanded parental team in the history of civilization, Frederica Hatch is starting to feel that her life is stiflingly snug. But then, into this cozy but claustrophobic world, comes Laura Lee French, a wannabe Rockette and the new dorm mother at the lackluster women's college where Frederica's parents teach and agitate.

Publisher's Summary

Born and raised in a college dorm and chafing under the care of the most annoyingly evenhanded parental team in the history of civilization, Frederica Hatch is starting to feel that her life is stiflingly snug. But then, into this cozy but claustrophobic world, comes Laura Lee French, a wannabe Rockette and the new dorm mother at the lackluster women's college where Frederica's parents teach and agitate. Further disturbing the peace is the fact that Miss French - in the distant past - had been married to Frederica's earnest and unglamorous father. Fearing scandal and campus glee, the three Hatches and Laura Lee attempt to keep their secret.

    "My Latest Grievance is this book"

    Heard so many wonderful things about Elinor Lipman but this was a huge disappointment. I'm not even a quarter of the way through but it's a toss up whether I'll continue with it. there's no perceivable plot and little dialogue, just a narrative by a young girl who is mildly amusing, but not very interesting. Her parents are downright boring and the newest character, the ex-wife is just silly. As to the "discovery" of this first marriage of the narrator's dad, well, it's just not interesting. I really don't care about the details. I really regret wasting my money on this one. Dang! Wish I had read the Amazon reviews and not just the Audible reviews, which turned out to be a bit misleading for me.
