Steven Robbins, advertising executive, has reached the top of his profession, as has his wife in hers, and the couple has the perfect life - or so they thought, until the pressures of their careers drive them apart, and they undergo a trial separation. During that time an unhappy Steve remakes his life, resigning from his job and starting a new life in the old Bronx neighborhood he grew up in, eventually recreating a less stressful and more satisfying life for himself. This novel by the author of "Oh, God" and "Kramer vs. Kramer" is lesser known than those two books which were made into fine movies, but it is a good story all the same, with a life-affirming ending that would give hope to anybody trapped in a similar struggle for filthy lucre. I also envy Steve the eventual career he created for himself.

I found this book interesting and easy reading. Fairly good believable story line, not too heavy. Short and sweet.
