Funny, not hilarious, but funny. This is the story of a rabbi, her husband, children and extended family in North London, coming apart and surviving.

I found this story uptight and over-dramatic, but maybe that was the intention with the chaos the Rubins and Claudia brought to the table. It is a dissection of Jewish family in London England after Leo (the eldest) is found out to be having an affair with another woman on his wedding day. While other family members hide secrets and try to find themselves and happiness. The drama breaks loose left, right and center.
