This is a book about finding true love. It reminds me strongly of Laurie Colwin, who wrote several books in the 80's and then died young. I loved Happy All the Time. This seems similar, and equally entertaining, with detailed descriptions of east coast urbanites, their lives, their looks and their thoughts--even minor characters are developed over several pages in fascinating detail.
