Do we really need another novel about mother-in-laws? Sure, if it’s as funny like Of Men and their Mothers. The tale is thin, the characters not exactly developed, but Maisie Grey’s life, including her outrageous mother-in-law, her loser ex-husband, and her sexually precocious (but sweet) son is entertaining. Never mind the inconsistencies (why would she want her son’s girlfriend to call her Mrs Pollock since she excised the Pollock from her name post divorce?), never mind the overdone characters. Just read and have a good time.
Scary author’s picture on the jacket cover. You’ve been warned.
