From the back cover:
"Two years after my mother died, my father fell in love with a glamorous blonde Ukrainian divorcee. He was eighty-four and she was thirty-six. She exploded into our lives like a fluffy pink grenade, churning up the murky water, bring to the surface a sludge of sloughed-off memories, giving the family ghosts a kick up the backside."

This was quite a story, both funny and serious at the same time. I enjoyed it and would recommend it.
I have lent it to someone who doesn't use a computer, so she won't journal it.

Got the book back and am saving it for a VBB.

RABCK 10 in the 52 Weeks 52 RABCK challenge. Sending out to the runner up of my RABCK Bookbox draw, its off to Australia so has done many many miles in its journey so far.
This is also a Hitchhiking book hoping to get to Mexico
Congratulations on finding a Hitchhiking book. I’m trying to see if I can get a
book to travel to a desired destination without it being sent their directly. The
aim is that the book will travel on your adventures. It may be passed to other
bookcrossers and friends, it may travel with you on your adventures or be wild
released.
If you’re not a bookcrosser and you have found this book please take a few
minutes to journal where you found it (this can be done anonymously), and then
leave it for someone else to discover. As it travels everyone whose hands it has
passed through will be able to monitor its journey if they so wish and therefore be
part of the journey. Oh and of course I’d love you to read it and enjoy its tale.

Oh, what a nice surprise the postie left for me this morning!
Thank you katrinat!
I'm really looking forward to reading this wishlist book (which is actually in New Zealand :) at the moment) and then helping it on it's way to Mexico. My first hitchhiking book...a really great idea.
Thank you also for the lovely King's College bookmark.

And it has arrived safely here in Pennsylvania - what a surprise! I knew that some people were doing this hitchhiking book idea, but never thought I'd be a part of it. It will stay here for a while till I read it though. Thanks and thanks!

Just finished it last night. At times the book annoyed me because the people were behaving so stupidly... but by the end I understood them better. I appreciated the way the author wove the present day, the past, and the history of tractors into one story. I'm not sure I would say I think it's funny exactly, but there were some funny situations.

I think this will be traveling to California with my sister, who is visiting in June. It will be getting closer to Mexico!
