About the Book
One woman’s trash becomes another woman’s treasure in this delightful new romantic comedy from Elinor Lipman, bestselling author of The Inn at Lake Devine and On Turpentine Lane.
Good Riddance is a pitch-perfect, whip-smart new novel from an “enchanting, infinitely witty yet serious, exceptionally intelligent, wholly original, and Austen-like stylist.” (Washington Post)
Daphne Maritch doesn’t quite know what to make of the heavily annotated high school yearbook she inherits from her mother, the late June Winter Maritch. June was the teacher to whom the class of ’69 had dedicated its yearbook, and in turn, she went on to attend every reunion, scribbling notes and observations after each one—not always charitably. In a fit of decluttering, Daphne discards the relic when she moves to a small New York City apartment. But when it’s found in the recycling bin by a busybody neighbor/documentary filmmaker, the yearbook’s mysteries—not to mention her own family’s—take on a whole new urgency, and Daphne finds herself entangled in a series of events both poignant and absurd.
