About The Book
The stunning new novel from Elinor Lipman, the sparkling comic writer praised by Maggie O’Farrell as ‘Hilarious. Imagine, if you can, a cross between Philip Roth and Melissa Bank. ‘Poor Alice Thrift: book-smart but people-hopeless. Alice graduated second in her class at medical school, but hospital life is proving quite a challenge. Evaluations describe her performance as ‘workmanlike’ and her people skills as ‘hypothermic’. Luckily, Alice’s roommate Leo, the most popular nurse at the hospital, and her feisty neighbour Sylvie, take on the task of guiding Alice through the narrow straits of her own no-rapport zone. When Ray Russo, a social-climbing fudge salesman, dedicates himself to a romantic pursuit, Leo and Sylvie harbour serious doubts. Yet as the chase intensifies, Alice’s bedside manner begins to thaw. Can this dubious character be the one to lift Alice out of the depths of her social ineptitude? Written with bite, pace and effortless wit, this seriously funny novel puts romance under the microscope with hilarious consequences.
