Audible Editor Reviews

The sharp and animated voice of veteran performer, Jo Anna Perrin, puts listeners right into the darkly comic mess that is Manda and her family. A Week of This, from newcomer Nathan Whitlock, is a uniquely plotted novel that follows the sarcastic Manda and her extended family for the course of one week. Full of clever dialogue and witty descriptions, this audiobook is an entertaining and sharply crafted look at the awkward and unavoidable interactions we all have to deal with when it comes to family.

Publisher's Summary

Darkly comic and startlingly honest, this novel follows the lives of an extended family over one increasingly desperate week. Manda is a 38-year-old, tough, sarcastic woman who has yet to make peace with the town she was brought to as a teenager after her parents' messy divorce. Her mother is estranged, her father is ill, her brother and stepbrother are emotionally distant and growing restless, and all the while, her tight-lipped and depressed husband is pressing her to have a baby. Full of barbed dialogue and macabre, deadpan descriptions of family dynamics and the awkward social dances performed daily, this novel depicts those who feel permanently out of place.
