Product Details


ONE OF PEOPLE MAGAZINE‘S BEST BOOKS OF SUMMER A MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK:, The Skimm, Southern Living, She Reads, Good Housekeeping A MUST READ BOOK: New York Post, USA Today

“Irreverent and unexpectedly tender, this story takes neighborhood feuding to new heights and finds beauty and reinvention in unlikely places. A wickedly funny debut.”
Oprah Daily

“When her marriage goes bust, Kathleen heads for Long Island, where the challenges of owning a beach house—okay, a converted oyster shack—fuel a series of unfortunate, yet absolutely hilarious, events.”

“With its wisecracking protagonist—Kathleen Deane, still reeling from her husband Tom’s declaration that he was unhappy with their Kansas life and marriage—Save What’s Left brings a tongue-in-cheek tone to the beach read genre.”

“Debut novelist Elizabeth Castellano has a fresh, funny new voice.”
Katie Couric Media

“You’ll laugh out loud as [Kathleen] goes to war against the development (and her neighbors), and cheer her on as she figures out just what she needs.”
—The Skimm
“In this hilarious farce, we realize that paradise really is anything but when you actually live there.”
Good Housekeeping

“Don’t miss this hilarious sendup of beach town politics.”

“The novel walks the line between funny and outright wacky, and Kathleen’s battles will resonate with any homeowner.”
the Star Tribune

“Devilishly astute.”
East End Beacon

“I loved every page of Save What’s Left—this voice, this eye, this story, its originality and wit, its offbeat social satire, its loopy cynicism, and a whole town’s good intentions gone awry. Fighting city hall has never been so delicious. Brava, Elizabeth Castellano. I can’t wait for your next book.”
—Elinor Lipman, author of Ms. Demeanor

“Save What’s Left is an absolute delight. It’s laugh out loud funny and full of heart. I loved it.”
—J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times bestselling author of Friends and Strangers

“Laugh-out-loud funny, Save What’s Left is a novel about life in a town that makes the perfect escape.”

“Castellano’s wickedly funny debut unfurls in miserable yet gleeful detail the soul-sucking nightmare of owning a house on the Long Island oceanfront. . . . Clearly, the key requirement for successful beach house ownership is a (possibly illegal) sense of humor. Bring it on!”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Castellano turns the beach-read genre on its head in her clever debut. . . . Kathleen’s character and worldview are impeccably drawn, thanks to Castellano’s idiosyncratic and assured voice. This witty send-up is a winner.”
Publishers Weekly
