Description

It s all wonderful fun. Lipman sketches her characters foibles with amused affection and moves the plot forward with practiced ease. Washington Post Unexpectedly widowed Gwen-Laura Schmidt is still mourning her husband, Edwin, when her older sister Margot invites her to join forces as roommates in Margot s luxurious Greenwich Village apartment. For Margot, divorced amid scandal (hint: her husband was a fertility doctor) and then made Ponzi-poor, it s a chance to shake Gwen out of her grief and help make ends meet. To further this effort she enlists a third boarder, the handsome, cupcake-baking Anthony. As the three swap moneymaking schemes and timid Gwen ventures back out into the dating world, the arrival of Margot s paroled ex in the efficiency apartment downstairs creates not just complications but the chance for all sorts of unexpected forgiveness. A sister story about love, loneliness, and new life in middle age from one of our finest comic writers. The View from Penthouse B mixes sisters, online dating, and Bernie Madoff's victims into a witty confection. Parade Lipman s acuity as a social observer makes her voice seem to belong to a wise and funny friend. Boston Globe A sly comedy of modern manners. Miami Herald"
