Staff Reviews

When an author I admire recommends a book to me, I listen. So when Marc Acito told me that I had to read Anne Mendel’s debut, Etiquette for an Apocalypse, I jumped at it. Besides, I love a good, funny post-Apocalyptic murder mystery. What’s not to love?

In 2020, everything fell apart. Now Sophia Cohen, her husband Bertrand, their teenage daughter Sasha, and Sophia’s mother Lulu, along with Lulu’s two Rottweilers, are living in an apartment in Portland, OR, and they’re scraping by, as you would expect after the Apocalypse. Still, there’s a small group of folks in the neighborhood who have banded together to form a tiny community, and while things aren’t great – Sasha maintains this is the worst Apocalypse ever! – they’re doing okay. When Bertrand discovers women being murdered, he takes it to Sophia, who can’t help investigating, even though she wants to mind her own business.

Let me tell you, Marc did not steer me wrong. This is a funny novel, true, but it has heart. The relationship Sophia and her family have is complicated, turbulent at times (Sasha’s a teenager so of course there’s trouble!), and filled with deep love. I laughed, as Marc promised I would, but more importantly, I cared. I think you will too; the Cohens and their friends are good people.
