A modern "Sense and Sensibility" -- if Jane Austen had been a secular Jew in Manhattan -- "The Three Weissmans of Westport" is a giddy, literate, well-plotted and -paced novel of manners. I enjoyed every bit. I was sorry it ended.

I really enjoyed this book -- I was completely engaged by the characters and their stories. Loved the Jane Austen echoes and the fact that Schine knew exactly when to follow Ms. Austen's plot patterns and when to let modern life add its own twists. I agree that there wasn't any sense of New York in the narration, but I got used to it. Definitely not rocket science, but more than a beach read -- we all know characters like these men and women and Schine is a perceptive observer of human nature.
