Roger Folger is a sixty-one year old widower who has daily communications with his departed wife Stella. The point of view alternates between these two characters, and certainly the best part of the book is Stella's quaint descriptions of heaven, which, she gushes, is very much like the Ritz-Carlton in Florida. Given the wealth of possibilities, it seems as though Buchwald should have been able to come up with something a little more inventive, but unfortunately, that's about as funny as this book gets. Convinced that her husband is pining away without her, Stella does everything she can to fix Roger up with another woman: one who meets her stringent criteria of what kind of wife he needs, naturally. The chapters with Roger are almost painful as we watch his fitful attempts to get on with his life. These scenes aren't comic so much as pathetic, and there's no real insight into either his character or his plight.
This middle-aged husband found the story more depressing than funny, and possessing little enough in the way of redeeming social value. Even Buchwald must have recognized the weakness of this book since he subtitled it "Almost a Novel". The characters are lame jokes, the plot is razor-thin, and the point is something like "Love is where you find it" or "Life goes on", and that's about it. This slim volume possesses enough humor for a couple of good newspaper columns, and that's really all.
