In this final installment of the Too Jewish Trilogy, Darby Cooper, the daughter of Bernie and Letty whom we met in Too Jewish, has become a bestselling New Orleans author after the turn of the millennium, drawing on the tragedy of her father’s life. Meanwhile, Hurricane Katrina has destroyed New Orleans. Letty has gone missing after the storm, leaving Darby perplexed and ambivalent. Daughter Honor has come back from evacuating to Florida with a boyfriend who claims he’s a mobster and is, in all other ways, a betrayal of every core value Darby has rescued from her tragic and treacherous family history. As she struggles in temporary quarters in shattered post-Katrina New Orleans, Darby confronts long-lost high-school classmates who want to reunite, oblivious to the role their cruelty played in her father’s death decades before. Darby’s grief and bewilderment are the reader’s, but they are easily tempered by her quick wit and humorous take at even the darkest moments.



In addition to three novels dealing with the "too Jewish" issues, Friedmann's works include award-winning Secondhand Smoke and her humor book Too Smart to Be Rich that was syndicated by the New York Times. Novels include Eleanor Rushing and The Exact Image of Mother, and One Knife, One Fork, One Spoon is her 2022 novel.



“Patty Friedmann may be the greatest New Orleans author of the past quarter century. If you like New Orleans, if you're interested in it Jewish community or Southern life or simply the rhythms of America's most unique city, you'll love Too Jewish. And even if you don't give a hoot about NOLA and its Jews, but Too Jewish for another reason: it's a great read.” - Failed Messiah
