Vinegar Girl: the Taming of the Shrew Retold by Anne Tyler

Kate Battista is the unmarried 29-year-old daughter of an eccentric scientist, Dr. Louis Battista. Having dropped out of college in her freshman year after calling a professor's research project "half-assed," she now finds herself with very limited opportunities.  Dr. Battista's brilliant lab assistant, Pyotr, will soon have to leave the country as his student visa expires. Dr. Battista devises a plan for a Green card marriage between Kate and Pyotr; Kate first objects to the plan, but slowly warms to the idea, both because of Pyotr's charming acceptance of her outspokenness, and because it offers her a way out of her constrained circumstances.

“I thought this would be a great follow-up to our June discussion. It is a retelling of Shakespeare’s comedy, but with a lot more humor and lightness.  Clearly, Anne Tyler had a lot of fun writing it!” -- Shannon
