The Pursuit of Alice Thrift by Elinor Lipman

Alice Thrift, the protagonist of The Pursuit of Alice Thrift, is a socially-challenged surgical intern who is so quiet and unassuming that her mothers suspects she's autistic. Into her life comes Ray Russo who constantly tells real whoppers of lies. Is Ray smitten with Alice, or is using her for some other nefarious reason? His constant support and pursuit of Alice brings her out of her shell. As Alice falls for Ray, the wallflower comes into full bloom. But where does the truth lie? Elinor Lipman's novel has received warm praise from most reviewers for this touching novel. The Denver Post calls The Pursuit of Alice Thrift "an insightful and endearing novel that begs to be pressed into the hands of good friends.".
