Families are chaos! Families are crazy! But no matter what, families forgive each other—at least in books and movies and TV shows designed to make us feel good about our lives. Right now, you might be thinking to yourself: “How do I know this novel is funny? How can I be SURE? Because if I’m giving this book to someone, I’m staking my reputation on its ability to inspire laughter and good feels.” Well, Maria Semple wrote for Arrested Development, Mad About You, and Saturday Night Live, so you can feel confident she’s got the funny thing covered.

Where’d You Go, Bernadette is among Charlotte Runcie's ten best bad mothers in literature, Joel Cunningham's seven notable epistolary novels and Chrissie Gruebel's five top books for readers inspired by Nora Ephron.
