Description
In this delightful novel from an author who "has been favored in so many ways by the muse of comedy,"* we meet Margaret Nathan, the brilliant but forgetful author of an unlikely bestseller. Happily married to a benevolently egotistical, slightly dull but sexy professor, Margaret seems blessed--until she finds herself seduced by an eighteenthcentury novel she discovers in the library. Rameau's Niece is wise, affecting, and thoroughly entertaining. Wrapped in its lascivious world, Margaret begins to imitate its protagonist, embarking on a hilarious jaunt around Manhattan in search of renewed passion. Will she find fulfillment through her escapades or settle for her husband? Part romantic comedy, part intellectual parody, Rameau's Niece is wise, affecting, and thoroughly entertaining. * New York Review of Books

Notes

Description
Until she is washed up panting on the farther shore of self-understanding. A screwball comedy of ideas, Rameau's Niece is insightful, affecting - and hilarious. At once an affectionate satire of New York intellectual life and a moving account of a young wife's coming-of-age, it confirms the stylistic accomplishment and command that critics hailed in Schine's previous fiction while advancing her work to new heights of comic complexity and psychological insight. Rameau's.

This witty companion to Rameau's Nephew, Diderot's light-footed masterpiece, traces the vagaries of a young woman's life as it begins to duplicate the surprising gyrations of an eighteenth-century lascivious novel she has uncovered. Along the path of temptation, love, lust, folly, and reconciliation through the sophisticated labyrinth of contemporary Manhattan, we join this delightful young Candida on her cockeyed quest for truth. Margaret Nathan is the scholarly though.
