Publisher Description

"Hilarious, suspenseful, and whip smart."
—Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney

Meet the Harrisons!
A mother running for Senate, a son running from his problems, and a daughter running straight into trouble...

From Grant Ginder, the author of The People We Hate at the Wedding, comes a poignant, funny, and slyly beguiling novel which proves that, like democracy, family is a messy and fragile thing —perfect for fans of Veep’s biting humor, the family drama of Succession, and the joys of Kevin Wilson’s Nothing to See Here.

Nancy Harrison is running for Senate, and she’s going to win, goddamnit. Not that that’s her slogan, although it could be. She’s said all the right things. Passed all the right legislation. Chapped her lips kissing babies. There’s just one problem: her grown children.

Greta and Nick Harrison are adrift. Nick is floundering in his attempts to write a musical about the life of Joan Didion (called Hello to All That!). And then there’s his little sister Greta. Smart, pretty, and completely unmotivated, allowing her life to pass her by like the shoppers at the Apple store where she works.

One morning the world wakes up not to Nancy making headlines, but her daughter, Greta. She’s in Paris. With extremist protestors. Throwing a bottle of champagne through a beloved bistro’s front window. In order to save her campaign, not to mention her daughter, Nancy and Nick must find Greta before it’s too late.

Smart, funny, and surprisingly tender, Let's Not Do That Again shows that family, like politics, can hurt like a mother.

Fun read with LOL moments

Entertaining. A fun, quick read with some truly funny moments and some hilarious writing. The storyline is interesting and easy to follow, which probably has something to do with the author’s time spent in Washington, D.C.

Accurate title

The title really sums this up for me “Let’s not do this again” …. Is precisely how I feel about this book. I like to finish books regardless of whether I’m enjoying them on or in the hopes it will end well but this one was a real chore. I just couldn’t get into it and couldn’t wait for the last page. Uninspired cliche characters and poor plot line that I could see coming even without my glasses. The best part about this book was finishing it. Let’s not do that again … for real.
