Overview

When Jed Hopkins gets laid off from his job at Newsweek, he retreats to the weekend house in Litchfield, Connecticut, that he and his high-powered wife, Molly, have rented for the summer. His goal is to write a novel, but he becomes increasingly lonely and dejected—until, one night, he catches two middle-aged neighbors, Joan and Gail, stealing the vegetables from his garden. Over a round of Mumblers (vodka on the rocks), Jed learns that the women run a Robin Hood–esque non-profit, Share the Bounty, that sells weekenders’ fruit and vegetables at the farmers’ market and gives the proceeds to charity. He tags along on their “adventures,” justifying it as research for his book. As the summer progresses, he becomes more and more invested in Share the Bounty. But what will Molly do when she finds out?
“Nutmegger”—which means someone from Connecticut—is breezy and clever, a garden party of a book.
