The Irresistible Henry House by Lisa Grunwald was published earlier this year, but has received little attention from book bloggers. Henry, born in 1946, is a "practice baby" in a home economics program at a prominent college. The book captured my attention from the opening sentence:
"By the time Henry House was four months old, a copy of his picture was being carried in the pocketbooks of seven different women, each of whom called him her son."
I'm afraid there won't be time for reading today though. It's a perfect fall day here in New York, and we will enjoy it in the Adirondack Mountains. I'll catch up with Henry House and the rest of you later tonight. Have a great Sunday!
