Tolstoy famously wrote, "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy
family is unhappy in its own way." To Tracy Farber, thirty-three, happily
single and headed for tenure at a major university, this celebrated maxim
is questionable at best. Because if Tolstoy is to be taken at his word, only
unhappiness is interesting. Happiness must be as placid and unmemorable
as a daisy in a field of a thousand daisies.
So Tracy sets out to prove that happiness and the search for
happiness can be, must be, a complicated mission. But little does she
know that her best proof will come when she meets George, who will
sweep her off her feet and challenge all of her old assumptions.
Love may be the ultimate cliche;, but in Rachel Kadish"s hands, it is
also a morally serious question, deserving of our sober attention as well
as our delighted laughter.
