Friday Freebie: Good Riddance by Elinor Lipman

Congratulations to Sudha Balagopal, winner of last week’s Friday Freebie: the new collection of short stories by Kathy Fish, Wild Life.

This week’s giveaway is for Good Riddance by Elinor Lipman and it sounds like a really fun read. Jill McCorkle, author of Life After Life, had this to say about the book: “The sharp, smart wit of Elinor Lipman is a treasure and Good Riddance more than delivers with laugh out loud dialogue, wise social commentary, and thoughtful observations about love.”  Keep scrolling for more information on the novel and how to enter the contest...

Daphne Maritch doesn't quite know what to make of the heavily annotated high school yearbook she inherits from her mother, who held this relic dear. Too dear. The late June Winter Maritch was the teacher to whom the class of '68 had dedicated its yearbook, and in turn she went on to attend every reunion, scribbling notes and observations after each one—not always charitably—and noting who overstepped boundaries of many kinds.
