Tama Janowitz created a literary sensation with her first book about New York and its slaves. Now she returns with a wickedly funny and glisteningly dark novel that takes as its subject our current obsession with conspicuous consumption -- especially in the form of one very misguided young woman, desperate to secure a mate and a certain lifestyle.

When Florence Collins sets out for a weekend in the Hamptons, her life spirals into a disastrous series of mishaps that include an unwanted night time visit from her friend's husband, the near drowning of their daughter, a bad financial gamble, and her expulsion from the premises. Thus begins this tragi-comic novel about the sad plight of a woman on the make in Manhattan.
