‘Fleishman is in Trouble’ by Taffy Brodesser-Akner – A Book That Nails Modern Love and Marriage

Fleishman is in Trouble by Taffy Brodesser-Akner‘s is the hilarious, powerful and brilliantly observed book I’m recommending to all my friends.

Brodesser-Akner is a staff writer at The New York Times Magazine and this is her first novel (she’s well-known for her celebrity profiles).

It’s a satirical novel about marriage, divorce, and modern love. Maria Semple describes it best: “From its opening pages, Fleishman is in Trouble is shrewdly observed, brimming with wisdom and utterly of this moment. Not until its explosive final pages are you fully aware of its cunning ferocity. Taffy Brodesser-Akner’s debut is that rare and delicious treat: a page-turner with heft.”

Try and avoid reading too much detail about it as there will no doubt be spoilers.
