Darling Liberty is the sometimes funny, sometimes tragic telling of writer Webb Sendak's complicated childhood, his unwanted rise to literary celebrity, and the worldly travels that followed his flight from the limelight. After ten years, and a slew of burned bridges, Webb has returned to New York under a shroud of secrecy to write a second novel.

Taking the name Rick Fuller, he settles into the idyllic woods along the Hudson River. But his peace is almost immediately shattered by twin teenage girls who live in a mansion upriver. Disturbed out of his routine by their juvenile pranks, Webb's harmony is further disrupted by the girls' mother, Susan Waitewatter, the stunning but seducing wife of a successful NYC attorney.

In the midst of writing his new book, hiding from the public eye, and juggling the mischief of Kassidy and Kennedy Waitewatter-and the sensual advances of their lonely mother-Webb Sendak begins to understand that not everything is as it seems. A novel of depth and feeling, of love and the bitter and devastating lack of love, past and present are weaved into every page. In the end, as events reach a crescendo of betrayal and violence, Webb must decide the ultimate value of everything, especially the meaning of love, in all of its magnificent absurdity.
