The New York Times bestselling author of Run Catch Kiss turns her satirical eye to the deeply twisted lives of urban mothers in upwardly mobile Park Slope, Brooklyn.
• Tales from the chic, new, urban frontier: Prospect Park West dishes on the “Brooklyn Bourgeois Breeder” phenomenon— the mass migration of yuppies from manhattan to Brooklyn—as well as on the gentrification of New York City and the truth about sex after parenthood.
• Desperate housewives: Four Brooklyn mothers’ life crises collide during a hot summer in Park Slope. Melora, an Oscar-winning actress, becomes a kleptomaniac. Sexually frustrated wife Rebecca begins an affair with a local celebrity. Neurotic Karen begins “real estate stalking,” spying on the homes of others, and the lonely stay-at-home mom and “hasbian” (former lesbian) Lizzie develops a dangerously intense friendship with another mother. As their lives threaten to spiral out of control, each woman must struggle to keep her sanity…and her play dates.
• Bestselling author of the New York City zeitgeist: Amy Sohn is a real-life Carrie Bradshaw who has written about sex, marriage, and motherhood for New York magazine in her columns “Naked City,” “mating,” and “Breeding.” She also wrote two hugely successful tie-in books for Sex and the City: The Movie.
