Books - The Weird Sisters

A novel about sisters.

The Weird Sisters is a find - a well written, amusing, sometimes touching book about the complicated relationships of three sisters.  No fantasy, no wild plot, no out and out comedy, just a straightforward novel... dipped in Shakespeare.  The father is a Shakespearean scholar, which warps his family in a way I found entertaining, but the situations and people are essentially realistic and truthful.  A likable book.

Given the backlog of Really Good Novels already written, it's tough to write a new plain ol' novel worth reading.  As this one is.  A debut - I'll be interested to read the next one.
