Praise
"A witty, compassionate chronicler of modern sensibility."
"In 'Isabel's Bed', Elinor Lipman serves up both doughnuts and bagels--spoiling us with the sweet glazes of fantasy, rationing out the complex carbohydrates of real life. While we might hunger for a more balanced diet, we applaud her for her bold use of the stuff of popular culture she finds readily at hand. She chases her mischievous muse from vulgar premise to criminal end. 'Isabel's Bed' is serious entertainment."
From the Publisher
Annotation Harriet Mahoney is hired to write the life of a scandalous woman, and moves into her Cape Cod retreat to observe her subject's life firsthand.
First Line Winter before last, a tea-leaf reader at a psychic fair looked into my cup and said she saw me living in a house with many beds and a big-mouth blonde.
Editors Note When Harriet Mahoney firsts sees it, Isabel Krug's bed is covered in sheared sheep and littered with celebrity biographies. The unpublished, fortyish, and recently jilted Harriet has fled Manhattan for a room atop a Cape Cod dune. There, in Isabel's loudly elegant retreat, she'll ghostwrite THE ISABEL KRUG STORY, based on the sexy blonde's scandalous tabloid past. Unusually talented in the man department ("I give lessons"), Isabel revamps and inspires Harriet as they gear up to tell all, including the tangled history Isabel shares with her odd lodger,Costas. Life according to Isabel is a soap-opera extravaganza, an experience to be swallowed whole--and the attitude is catching....
