Who would move in with their former mother-in-law? Jef Fall, for one, after a mild stroke left Nanana unable to manage on her own. Bugs in Her Tea takes you with Jef, his former wife Ann and Nanana on the ensuing adventure in caregiving. Humorous and difficult and moving--sometimes the days in Rutherford, New Jersey prove to be all three at once. Special challenges blossom, too: Nanana's possessiveness and reluctance to leave the house; the ex-spouses working closely together again; tensions between mother and daughter; a mystifying physical decline.
