Good Riddance

by Elinor Lipman.

A poor guy from a small New Hampshire town gets a bad rap. He’s an unwitting love-struck kid who shows a great deal of civility toward the woman he loves and her family. Yet they heap unwarranted vitriol on him. So there’s that. Then. Father and daughter end up in New York City four blocks apart in Hell’s Kitchen. They become enmeshed in each other’s sex lives. Yuck. Jeremy, a character on “Riverdale” has some spunk. Lots of dog-walking and poop-scooping. Oh. And there’s the central intrigue around an old yearbook and class reunions back up in New Hampshire. Yawn.

But. A fast read from a usually better author. Fine for a hot and humid Saturday.
