“The Family Markowitz” by Allegra Goodman

This  story of several generations of the Markowitz family was a very good read — touching and funny, and more “real” than some of the David Lodge novels I was reading earlier.  (I do not think that this is because the Jewishness of the story rings truer to me than the Englishness of Lodge’s characters.)  The whole think hung together beautifully, and I don’t think I can really do it justice by pulling out any single part for comment.
