Pulitzer Prize winner and American master Anne Tyler brings us an inspired, witty and irresistible contemporary take on one of Shakespeareâs most beloved comedies
Kate Battista feels stuck. How did she end up running house and home for her eccentric scientist father and uppity, pretty younger sister Bunny? Plus, sheâs always in trouble at work â her pre-school charges adore her, but their parents donât always appreciate her unusual opinions and forthright manner.Â
Dr. Battista has other problems. After years out in the academic wilderness, he is on the verge of a breakthrough. His research could help millions. Thereâs only one problem: his brilliant young lab assistant, Pyotr, is about to be deported. And without Pyotr, all would be lost.
When Dr. Battista cooks up an outrageous plan that will enable Pyotr to stay in the country, heâs relying â as usual â on Kate to help him. Kate is furious: this time heâs really asking too much. But will she be able to resist the two menâs touchingly ludicrous campaign to bring her around?
