Summary
"Widowed novelist, near seventy, ex-Park Avenue girl, ex-beatnik, ex-many other things too complicated to list here, loves big parties, summers at the beach, grandchildren, seeks interesting man for dinner and a movie." Anne Roiphe was not quite seventy years old when her husband of nearly forty years unexpectedly passed away. But it was not until her daughters placed a personal ad in a literary journal that Roiphe began to consider the previously unimagined possibility of a new man. Moving between heartbreaking memories of her marriage and the pressing needs of a new day-to-day routine, this book takes us on her journey into the unknown world of life after love. Roiphe offers us an elegant literary pastiche not of grief, but of hope and renewal.--From publisher description
Summary
As the death of her husband truly sinks in, Anne Roiphe begins her vignette-constructed memoir. An acclaimed writer, Roiphe now commences a new chapter of her life, one of firsts and singularity. This is her story of renewal, self-awareness, and acceptance
