Soon to be a major motion picture starring Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, and Adam Driver
The death of Judd Foxman's father marks the first time that the entire Foxman clan has
congregated in years. There is, however, one conspicuous absence: Judd's wife, Jen,
whose affair with his radioshockjock
boss has recently become painfully public.
Simultaneously mourning the demise of his father and his marriage, Judd joins his
dysfunctional family as they reluctantly sit shivaand
spend seven days and nights
under the same roof. The week quickly spins out of control as longstanding grudges
resurface, secrets are revealed and old passions are reawakened. Then Jen delivers the
clincher: she's pregnant.
This Is Where I Leave You is Jonathan Tropper's (One Last Thing Before I Go) most
accomplished work to date, and a riotously funny, emotionally raw novel about love,
marriage, divorce, family, and the ties that bindwhether
we like it or not.
