Elizabeth is an ambivalent academic living in New York City with Brett and their young son, Harry. Everyone wants Elizabeth to marry Brett, including Brett, but whenever marriage comes up, the intended bride quickly changes the subject. Then Elizabeth publishes a paper on Madame Bovary that catches the eye of an impetuous movie producer, and her life turns upside down. She heads for Hollywood to write a screenplay called Mrs. B., but once there, the questions of marriage, and adultery, loom even larger on her horizon.

Greta has nothing against marriage. She's been happy in her new life with Tony, until the day she falls asleep on the sofa and wakes up in love with someone else. Now she has to handle not only the unpredictable needs of her daughter and the plaintive demands of her mother but also the insistence of her own desire.

Lotte was once a flash dancer in vaudeville. She has little patience with her granddaughter's refusal to marry that nice husband of hers. She has no patience with death. Chic and sly and uncompromisingly egotistical, Lotte reveres marriage and has mourned her late husband for twenty years, but she's not at all ready to join him. She has far too much shopping left to do.

    " I'm really glad that I listened to this on tape and didn't waste time reading it. I would have been really pissed if I had spent time out of my life to read this. Although the book started off rather interesting I just couldn't see how everything fit together. Madame B was mentioned so many times that if a person hadn't read the book they would have been totally lost. She tackles so many topics within the book as well that the characters are someone shallow. The reader did a good job with some of the funny parts but that is about all. I was really really disappointed and will probably not read another of this authors books. I'm giving it 2 starts instead of one purely for the fact that at least she did mention some classic literature which is always a nice thing for authors to do... "

    " This is funny and sad -- a daughter, a mother and a grandmother who are all ill, all mistrustful of one another, putting up fronts, etc. but who must care for one another in their respective illnesses. "

    " Not an easy read, or a "fun" one, but a brutally frank look at three generations of women facing health and relationshionship crises, with an ending that is courageous enough not to tie up their stories in a neat bow. Fiction, but so real it stays with you after the last page has been read. "

    " uneven -- sometimes the characters were compelling (mother with new lesbian mother, yes; academic-transiting-to-screenwriter, not always) but sometimes annoying. appreciated the family relationships and the ending was strong.... "
