Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
In a comic family saga by a best-selling Pulitzer Prize winner, Jack and Joy Griffin's lives seem to always come back to Cape Cod, where they honeymooned, as they experience the ups and downs of life, including the deaths of Jack's parents, the marriage of their daughter, and Jack and Joy's divorce. Simultaneous.
"In this wryly funny, introspective novel, Russo eschews the broad social canvas and small-town milieu that have been mainstays of his work. The scope may be narrow, but the result is an impressively expansive analysis of familial dynamics between not only spouses but also in-laws."
Joanne Wilkinson, Booklist Upfront, 07/01/2009Review:
"If there's a funnier serious book than THAT OLD CAPE MAGIC, it's in orbit in the Margaret Atwood galaxy....[W]hen we finish reading THAT OLD CAPE MAGIC, we know we'll start rereading it soon. And that the characters will come to mind at the most unpredictable times. We will stay on speaking terms with them more than we do with some of our real-life cousins."
