Jami Attenberg is the guest. Her new novel, The Middlesteins, is now available from Grand Central Publishing. 

Jonathan Franzen raves

"The Middlesteins had me from its very first pages, but it wasn't until its final pages that I fully appreciated the range of Attenberg's sympathy and the artistry of her storytelling."

Kate Christensen says

"The Middlesteins is a truly original American novel, at once topical and universally timeless. Jami Attenberg has created a Midwestern Jewish family who are quintessentially familiar but fiercely, mordantly idiosyncratic. This novel will make you laugh, cry, cringe in recognition, and crave lamb-cumin noodles. This is a stunningly wonderful book."

And Kirkus, in a starred review, calls it

"Deeply satisfying. . . . A sharp-tongued, sweet-natured masterpiece of Jewish family life."

Monologue topics:  social anxiety, silent judging, dinners, paranoia, Indiana, tag, shopping malls, faux pas.
