When the much older HUSBAND of author and former enfant terrible MARION GOLDMAN (57) dies, Marion throws herself back into Manhattan cultural society with a vengeance- conspicuously carousing and canoodling with the zeal of a woman half her age. Marion surprises herself- and her FRIENDS and ADULT CHILDREN- by falling for not one but two much younger lovers: conservative banker JAMES (31) and free-wheeling poet LUCIA (24). Now on the "December" side after decades as "May," Marion wrestles with her past intentions, the facts and fictions of her current relationships, the physical toll of her new romantic life, and the possibility that James and Lucia might be better off with each other than they are with her.
"A delightful new spin on coming of age."
