About Finding Mr. Rightstein

“My father in his coffin looked better than most of the men I dated. . . .”

Nancy Davidoff Kelton, Finding Mr. Rightstein

In this heartbreaking, hilarious memoir, Nancy Davidoff Kelton takes us from the gray house of her Buffalo childhood with a depressed mother who was in and out of “the nervous hospital” to the often daunting but never dull world of dating as a divorced mom in Manhattan.
