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. (from the first line)
"A marvelous, quirky novel" ("The Boston Globe") by the author of "Then She Found Me". When Harriet Mahoney first sees it, Isabel Krug's bed is covered in sheared sheep and littered with celebrity biographies. Now Harriet is about to get a lesson in life from this eccentric woman, whose autobiography she is ghostwriting.
From the Publisher:
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 The unpublished, fortyish, and recently jilted Harriet has fled Manhattan for a room atop a Cape Cod dune.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...."A marvelous, quirky novel" ("The Boston Globe") by the author of "Then She Found Me".

Praise

Boston Globe
"A witty, compassionate chronicler of modern sensibility." - Michael Dorris

New York Times Book Review
"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." - Paul Kafka 2/5/95
