Cathleen Schine

They May Not Mean To, But They Do

Once again, Cathleen Schine has come up with a thoroughly engaging book,this time about a close-knit Jewish family based for the most part in New York City. This story covers three generations, from Joy, an 86-year-old matriarch, to her son and daughter and their children. Written in poignant language, Schine deftly tackles the topics of aging, illness, and even death, all the while maintaining a light touch, a sense of humor, and much compassion. This is a highly enjoyable novel.
