The Vacationers by Emma Straub

vacationers

Celebrating their thirty-fifth anniversary and their daughter’s high-school graduation during a two-week vacation in Mallorca, Franny and Jim Post confront old secrets, hurts, and rivalries that reveal sides of themselves they try to conceal.

Spongy and dear, sharply observed and funny, Straub’s domestic-drama-goes-abroad is a delightful study of the complexities of family and love, and the many distractions from both.  – Booklist.

An examination of fidelity, passion, and the vagaries of relationships, this is summer reading with some sizzle and seriousness. – Library Journal
