This Is Where I Leave You Overview

This Is Where I Leave You, by Jonathan Tropper, follows seven days in the life of Judd Foxman and his family as they observe a Jewish ritual (sitting Shiva) to honor the memory of the family patriarch, Mort. The story shifts between the family's present and Judd's memories of the past. Through the sense of community the ritual creates, Judd and his family members learn to appreciate Mort's life, to express emotion, to grieve loss, and to move on to more fulfilling lives.
