Description

Classic Susan Isaacs, Close Relations shows the enormously popular, perennial New York Times bestselling author of Compromising Positions at her sexy and satiric best. A novel that acerbically blends sex, politics, and family craziness, Close Relations is a hilarious testament to the well-established fact that "Isaacs delivers witty, wicked satire from beginning to end" (Entertainment Weekly) and "writes wonderful books, loaded with wit, crammed with memorable characters" (Los Angeles Times).

Back cover copy

It was a situation from which half-hour television comedies are made. "Marcia! In tonight's episode, Marcia Green's warm and winning and wise and wonderful Jewish family reminds her that she is thirty-five, divorced, and childless."

That's Marcia on her close relations. True, she's one of the best speechwriters around in the tough world of New York's smoke-filled rooms, but her family wants something else for her. No, not that Irish person she's living with. Another doctor, or at least a dentist.

But Marcia claims she's happy, getting plenty of the two things that exhilarate her most: sex and politics. She's not looking for commitment, and certainly not looking for a wealthy Harvard-educated man-about-town who is every mother's dream. Yet as wise mothers everywhere are fond of saying: you never know.
