But who can blame her for acting out? Worried about her husband's whereabouts, Grace discovers Ben and her very nude and much younger assistant in a compromising position in the front seat of the car.

Groth was a receptionist at the The New Yorker magazine from 1957-1978. She met great writers, Mad Men types, and bohemians, giving her a unique position to sample from the cultural plate of New York City and beyond, and to figure out how she wanted to fit into that world. This is a great portrait of that place and time, and a fascinating story of a woman during that era finding herself. - Kent

Cristina Garcia weaves together the lives of five characters at a hotel in an unnamed Central American country. With its lyrical description and touches of magic (and of course the setting) the prose may faintly echo that of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, but Cristina Garcia has crafted a subtle and delightful gem of her own. - Tony
