The Vacationers by Emma Straub
This story of a family traveling to Majorca, Spain is full of sun and dysfunction. Franny and Jim Post are struggling through a small bout of adultery. Their adult son Bobby is dating an older woman and has gotten into some financial trouble. Their daughter is smitten with the cute Spanish tutor they’ve hired for the vacation duration. They also traveled to the summer house with their friends, a gay couple who are anxiously awaiting news about their adoption process. Put all of these people together in the same house in a foreign country and you get a bit of trouble. This book reminded me a lot of Jonathan Tropper’s This is Where I Leave You (which I loved and you should also read!)
