Ann Leary's The Good House creates a one-of-a-kind character in Hildy Good, and gives us a raw, first-person glimpse into the mind of a middle-aged, outspoken wry New England realtor so real she might be someone you know. yet who also is hiding her alcoholism from her family, her town, and herself. Leary's genius is to give us a true original: Hildy, a not-so-recovering alcoholic/realtor who crashlands among a colorful cast of New England neighbors, but Leary also says a great deal about the houses we choose to live, the people we're compelled to love, and the addictions we don't want to give up.
I can walk through a house once and know more about its occupants than a psychiatrist could after a year of sessions. I remember joking about this one evening with Peter Newbold, the shrink who rents the office upstairs from mine. The next time you get a new patient, I offered, I’ll sneak to their house for a walk-through. While you jot down notes about their history, dreams, whatever, I’ll shine a flashlight into the attic, open a few cupboards, and have a peek at the bedrooms. Later, when we compare notes, I’ll have the clearer picture of the person’s mental health, guaranteed.

Leary, Ann. It was a Wednesday night and I had a closing the next morning. A new-construction home in Gloucester with water views that sold for just under a million. This time the purchasers were. mine and it was Wendy’s listing. It was a rainy evening and I was going through all the paperwork for the next morning. I was also finishing off a nice bottle of Pinot Noir that I had grabbed from the MG when I arrived home.
