Miami Beach is the haven of a quirky cast of characters in Stanley Elkin's wry vision of contemporary culture that won the National Book Award. In this Florida, the bright sunlight is shared by drug lords, health food fanatics, wealthy socialites, and refugees from the Midwest. Why are so many men interested in Mrs. Ted Bliss, newly widowed from a Chicago butcher? Is it her smile, her flawless Buick Le Sabre, or her late husband's business connections? She is about to find out, as she embarks on an unconventional new life that lures her from the familiar world of her Jewish family. Stanley Elkin's darkly humorous, sharply perceptive novels have earned him the praise of authors like Saul Bellow and Kurt Vonnegut. You'll love this sprightly story of love and money, deftly narrated by the incomparable George Guidall.

    " I was listening to this book on tape. I only got through the first 2 tapes and gave up on the story. I had no idea where it was heading and I just wasn't that interested in any of the characters. "

    " I just couldn't get into it. I almost never leave a book unfinished but this one jsut did nothing for me. "

    " Must be a book you either 'get'/love, or don't. I didn't. An elderly Jewish woman lives in a Florida (Miami) condo amongst other elderly Jewish retirees and Latin American shady characters (drug smugglers, etc). "
