Him Her Him Again The End of Him

by Patricia Marx

This book has an earnest good humor, it's consistently likable, it’s funny and winning and welcome to drop by for drinks. Some of the gags work beautifully, especially a wonderful, tight eulogy an old school friend delivers for her late (and nearly-ex) husband. Some don’t quite work. It happens. And the book (like its narrator) sometimes makes the same mistakes over and over. Who's perfect?
