    Sisters Miranda, an impulsive but successful literary agent, and Annie, a pragmatic library director, quite unexpectedly find themselves the middle-aged products of a broken home. Dumped by her husband of nearly 50 years and then exiled from their elegant New York apartment by his mistress, their mother, Betty, is forced to move to a small, run-down Westport, Connecticut, beach cottage owned by her wealthy and generous cousin Lou.

    "fun listen, but narrator unworthy"
    Overall

    I just finished listening to this book. I actually had to bring my ipod in from the car to get the last 30 minutes or so because I was enjoying the story so much. I will heartily recommend this book to my friends, but can't truly recommend this audio experience: I agree with the last reviewer in that the narrator just doesn't seem to "get" these characters... I mean, for goodness sake, the Three Weissmanns are exiled New Yorkers! give us some NY! Five stars for the book, 2 stars for narration.

  • The Elephant to Hollywood

    Charming, engaging, and surprisingly forthright, Michael Caine gives us his insider's view of Hollywood and the story of his brilliant second act. When he was in his late 50s, Michael Caine believed his Hollywood career had come to an end. The scripts being sent his way were worse and worse. Salvation came in the unlikely form of his old friend Jack Nicholson, who convinced him to give acting one more shot. What followed was one of the most radical comebacks in film history.

    It was a great pleasure having Michael Caine in the car with me, telling me the fascinating story of his life and cracking jokes. What a great giggle he has!
