I enjoyed it very much. Mar 21, Katri rated it it was ok 2. A random pick from the library shelf. Not quite as fluffy as I thought it was going to be.

Special Relationship: Robyn Sisman: Books

But still not a great book. I did like this quote, though: Marriage was never the sum of one plus one. It had the potential to enhance or to diminish out of all recognition the individuals it bound so tightly together. IF there's another book!! But there isn't here.

Robyn Sisman obituary

I think the author was just rushed to the deadline and hurried it. When people pick up I definitely didn't like the ending. When people pick up a book like this, they want a happy ending. Not one that leaves a sense of yearning.

Girl goes to college, falls for two guys, both handsome, successful, ambitious. One becomes a presidential candidate.

Robyn Sisman obituary | Books | The Guardian

Again, not a classic, but better than the usual summer read. It took him three years to finish Fatherland, by which time Robyn, who has died of cancer aged 66, had moved to Hutchinson, taking Harris with her. Pregnant with her first child, she left Hutchinson and turned her hand to fiction.

Her first novel was published in Special Relationship had its own twist, born of her time at Oxford, where Bill Clinton had been a Rhodes scholar and her contemporary. A witty, classy and gleeful novel, it was highly successful and also admired. Five more novels were to follow: Like her debut novel, they are funny, fluent descriptions of what it is to fall in love, of obstacles encountered and overcome.

But Robyn was no romantic: She was her own most unsparing critic, and never appreciated how talented she was. When Robyn died, many of her friends, including me, had not even been aware that she was ill.

But perhaps this is not so surprising: She died as she had lived, with a fierce sense of privacy, with no self-pity, with great courage. Her intelligence and perspicuity made her a gifted editor; her dry, droll humour added zest to the quick-witted romantic comedies she wrote; her loyalty, sense of fun and unswerving integrity made her a singular person, classy and sharp and true.

Robyn was born in Los Angeles.
