Description

A splendid Hudson River estate, complete with cook and rose garden. The landscape is inebriating; the women are in full, passionate bloom; the men are incomprehensible. Susie, chic, smart, spacey, and no longer promiscuous, decides, at forty-five, to do what she would have done at twenty-five--invite a group of amusing friends to spend eight weekends of summer in stunning surroundings. The invitees include her oldest friend Kay, elegantly nursing a broken heart; her former lover Dodge--still the sexiest man she knows; his randy, neurotic, comedian friend Ron; and Elise, an on-the-cusp artist determined to be in a relationship before she hits forty. Add to the mix Susie's very ardent, very surprising twenty-four-year-old son, and an exhibitionist au pair next door, and you have a delicious romantic farce that deftly slides into and out of something quite a bit darker.
