Here’s Lauren latest book recommendation:
Book of the Monthish Club: Claudia Silver to the Rescue. Best thing I've read in ages. Out tomorrow in stores, or online now!
— Lauren Graham (@thelaurengraham) June 18, 2013
Claudia Silver to the Rescue is written by Kathy Ebel, a long time friend of Lauren. Lauren mentioned during her conversation with Anna Quindlen in early May in New York that Jane Levine, Franny’s best friend and roommate in “Someday, Someday, Maybe“, was inspired by Kathy.
Here’s what Lauren says about the book (and can be seen on the back cover of the book):
“Claudia Silver is an utterly lovable heroine with a voice—and a journey—that had me hooked. It’s a very funny book with a deeply compassionate heart. I rooted for Claudia, I felt for her, and I didn’t want to say goodbye.” — Lauren Graham, author of Someday Someday Maybe
In this gutsy debut novel, flawed but unsinkable Claudia Silver cuts a wide comic swath through 1990s New York City in her misguided attempts to find love and happiness.
Estranged from her bohemian Brooklyn family and fired for an impropriety at work, Claudia Silver is officially in over her head. When her younger sister lands on her doorstep urgently in need of help, twenty-something Claudia desperately wants to offer the rescue that she herself has longed for. But Claudia missteps dramatically, straight into a disastrous love affair that disrupts three very different New York households. Ultimately, she discovers the resilient nature of love where she least expects it—among her own family.
Claudia Silver to the Rescue is the firece yet tender chronicle of the many humiliations and occasional triumphs of a young woman determined to wrest her identity from the spectacular wreckage of her mistake. Uncomfortably hilarious, quintessentially human, Claudia is an unforgettable heroine who shoots for the stars and hits the ceiling.
The book is available in Hardcover, Kindle Edition and Audiobook on amazon.com: Claudia Silver to the Rescue
