The Private Lives of Pippa Lee by Rebecca Miller

At fifty, Pippa Lee seems just fine. The devoted wife of a brilliant publisher thirty years her senior, the proud mother of successful twins, and a lovely and adored friend and neighbour, she seems to glow with feminine serenity. But when her husband spontaneously decides they should cast off Gramercy Park for Marigold Village retirement home, as a 'preemptive strike against his decrepitude,' Pippa finds her beatific persona unravelling in alarming ways. The truth is, the gracious woman of the present day has seen more than her fair share of the wild side. By seventeen, Pippa had lived with a prescription drug-addicted mother, felt the first stirrings of sexuality with a school girlfriend, had an affair with a teacher, and run away from home, set adrift on a course littered with broken hearts - until she found love and security in a family of her own. And now that seemingly established world, too, is in danger. In Pippa Lee we have an unforgettable heroine, and a quirky and acutely intelligent portrait of the many lives behind a single name. Even after we have read it, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee is a story that is still unfurling.
