Overview

This captivating story offers an insider's eye into a world of publishing, interior design, fashion and food.

As Elie Sands turns 50, she seems to have it all - a fabulous job as editor of an interior design magazine, a handsome, rich husband and two lovely daughters. She lives in a Central Park co-op and owns a home in the Hamptons. Her close friends are: Syd - the stunning 60 year-old who lives in the penthouse and follows her instincts without a care for the opinions of others, and Michael - the gay designer who is fastidious, flamboyant and wildly entertaining.

Life in the middle-aged lane seems to be gliding along just fine for these three Manhattanites, until bad news arrives. How they cope with their individual challenges and reassess their future is the essence of this novel, told in a witty and insightful manner.

Meet the Author

Anne Kleinberg was an interior designer before she started writing for newspapers and magazines. A lifestyle column led to food writing, which led to cookbooks and now - a novel! She's a born and bred New Yorker who had an epiphany and moved to Israel. She lives there with her husband and two wacky mutts.

I abosultely fell in love with this book. It was totally inspirational for me. This book really cut to the core of marriage, family, friendships and how to trust your gut feeling. It really covered life. I loved this book!

This book is a great read! The characters are so well developed that you can close your eyes and imagine them in your head. I learned so much about art, food, friendship and the importance of having a good "sense of morality." I look forward to what has yet to be written by this author and will share this book with family and friends who are "women of a certain age" as well as "silver and sage." Well done, Anne!

This was a great read! I'm not Jewish but this didn't matter. A very well written book and it gives you some very good insights into the Jewish life styles. You will love the characters and laugh and cry with them!

I thoroughly loved the book. It was an easy read. Had some funny stuff and teared up a couple times. You never know if you can achieve your dreams if you don't try. I would recommend the book.

This one sounds like a hoot. Feel free to borrow if you have a Nook and want to be my "Nook Friend"!

Would have been even nicer if the people were not wealthy. Most people can't have this kind of life. Liked it even so.

I just could not get in to this story. I lent it to my sister (who reads much faster than I do) so she could tell me the ending. I stopped reading halfway through.

...but a really fun read. I loved the ascertiveness of the main character and how believable of a character she was in this book. Worth reading.

I became very vested in the well developed characters in this story, I didn't want it to end. I could fully visualize the story as it unfolded. This was a very good purchase, & I highly recommend it.

Found this witty and fun book to be very entertaining! Great story with strong characters. According to her website, the author will soon release the second phase ... I'm sure it will be as fun as Menopause in Manhattan. Made me homesick for NYC.
