A wedding set in tony Scottsdale and a vicious gossip columnist set the stage for a story that is a biting, comical satire of a sometimes cruel and ofttimes frivolous lifestyle. People with too much money live in a place that is too hot and develop a community obsession with one-upping each other. Amid all this, our heroine, Jean Rubin, carries on her multi-tasked and over-stressed life creating a fast-paced and hilarious romp through the absurdities of life. This is a very funny and thought-provoking book.
