This is a quirky book that tells the love story of Veblen (who thinks a squirrel is trying to communicate with her) and Paul (her fiancé and a neurologist who just took a job at the Department of Defense). Throw in her institutionalized father and hypochondriac mother, and his hippie parents and disabled brother. Many say this novel is laugh-out-loud funny. I didn’t find it that way, but thought it was charming and liked how the meatier theme of values was weaved in.
