The widows guide to sex and dating Text chat slut
The front cover blurb, by Candace Bushnell, is predictable and unimpressive.
I find the show unwatchable but I find widows fascinating so I picked up Radziwill’s new book.
Thirty-something journalist Claire’s domineering, much older husband, Charlie, a famous author and sexology expert, is walking down Madison Avenue after an adulterous assignation when a fake Giacometti statue falls off a crane and kills him.
Although the nine-year marriage lacked passion, Claire finds herself at sea.
Claire, we’re told, was once a finalist in a short story contest for “a prestigious literary journal called Zoetrope: All-Story.” You can picture Radziwill, with her big eyes and plump lips looking through a list of literary magazines, dropping down past The New Yorker, and Harper’s, and Granta, and arriving at Zoetrope. This is the story of widow-as-glamorous-and-fun-young-woman-rediscovering-the-world.
It doesn’t quite fit the manicures, champagne, sex with movie stars, and red-eye flights to LA that populate the rest of the novel.
