Overview

Now restored to print--the acclaimed second novel by the National Book Award--winning author of Dale Loves Sophie to Death and The Evidence Against Her. Claudia and Avery Parks, lovers since high school, are now in their thirties. Intelligent, charming, sympathetic, they seem to be the ideal couple, the perfect dinner-party guests, almost everything people should be--except responsible. They are causally yet cruelly oblivious to the ways in which their words and actions affect other people, most particularly their talented 11-year-old daughter, who suffers the misfortune of being treated by her parents not as a child but as an equal.
An engrossing domestic tale by a novelist of the first rank--an ideal selection for reading groups.
Robb Forman Dew's first novel, Dale Loves Sophie to Death, received the National Book Award in 1982.

You know how great it is to dive into the bargain books and find a new great author? This is not one of those times. This book describes the messed up lives of Jane who is 11 and her parents. Her dad is an alcoholic when he is around her mother so he leaves. He mother has no.... focus? energy to do anything and just drifts around the house in her bathrobe. So the daughter is messed up and pretty snotty. The only character in this book you can like is the neighbor Maggie, from whom Jane steals percodan. There was really no story here. Just profiles of some real losers.
