We are still dispatching all items as quickly as possible. Description Imported from USA. Claire has almost no identity of her own, and she is convinced by friends to lose her widowed virginity and move on. There is a constant war between lightness and heaviness in the subject, in the story, and in the telling that seems intrinsic to city dwellers. The plot features a lot of takeout, and Claire sees multiple therapists, a psychic, and a botanomanist to get herself sorted out, which, by the end, she more or less does.

Radziwill’s novel is the perfect book for your solo reading or your next book club. The title is tongue-in-cheek, so you won’t find yourself delving into deep grief issues. Instead, you will be carving out time to lose yourself in this splendid novel. Humor permeates Radziwill’s writing, and the dialogue is flawless…The complete triple package — joy, humor, and romance.

This weekend, on Friday night, I left a party early in order to come home and read a book written by a Real Housewife of New York. Clearly, Radziwill is the writer of the group. I am not a fan of the Real Housewives franchise. I have seen one or two episodes of the one based in Atlanta and one episode of the one based in New York. The front cover blurb, by Candace Bushnell, is predictable and unimpressive. It helps Bushnell to blurb Radziwill as much as it helps Radziwill to get a blurb from Bushnell.

According to her Wikipedia page, she and her late husband were very close friends of John F. Kennedy, Jr. Had I not known her name as a writer, I would never be able to tell the difference between her and the other women on the show. Does everyone face this problem? Do the Real Housewives of Any City always blend into one another or do they develop distinct personalities if you watch the show for long enough?

A wife dies, and a star is born.

By Diane Clehane. It was fascinating to me to see that she had approached the earth-shattering event of losing her husband, Anthony Radziwill , from two diametrically different perspectives and chosen to write about young widowhood twice. While her memoir came first, published six years ago, Carole told me the novel was ten years in the making. Everything she does, she does for the show. How the heck did she wind up on Real Housewives?
