Guide to sex and dating
This weekend, on Friday night, I left a party early in order to come home and read a book written by a Real Housewife of New York. Carole Radziwill, whose opening statement on The Real Housewives of New York is, “If you’re going to talk about me behind my back, at least check out my great ass.” Not bad given that some of the other housewives’ opening statements are: “I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but I’m pretty.” “Sometimes Sonja has to go commando. ” “A true New Yorker never backs down, and I’m no exception. The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating is the new novel by Carole Radziwill.According to her Wikipedia page, she and her late husband were very close friends of John F. and Carolyne Bessette-Kennedy, both of whom died in a plane crash within a month of Radziwill’s husband dying (of cancer, when he was only 40).
She meets and flirts with Jack at the opening of one of his films but gets drunk and ends up sleeping with the co-star (think Bradley Cooper instead of George Clooney, poor girl).
Instead, you will be carving out time to lose yourself in this splendid novel.
Humor permeates Radziwill's writing, and the dialogue is flawless.
The reader is quickly drawn Claire's cluttered life.
Clare was married to Charles Bryne, a sexologist and well-known author.
Charlie has left an unfinished manuscript about a movie star named Jack Huxley, and his agent wants Claire to complete it.
