    Nelle suggested this book by Richard Russo.  I just finished it last night.  Very good book.

      It is about a man who I believe is going through a mid-life crisis.  Trying to figure out exactly who he is and if he is more like the parents that he seems to despise.  The book winds through both his current marriage and his memories of his parents and the summers they spend at the Cape. 

      Nelle can probably recap better than I, I'm not a great reviewer.

      Ahhhhh....so the mid-life crisis is really a novel in disguise, Nelle?

        Leo and I are in a perpetual mid-life crisis. We follow our bliss and insist on passion in work and life. A couple of kids at heart.

    That sounds like a book I would be interested in. I have fond memories of the one summer I visited the Cape in the '70s.
