The widow's guide to sex and dating
For example, when the protagonist meets a very nice man and is asked what she does she says she creates sex toys. all to give us that "New Yorkers are so quirky vibe" that is oh so original.
There is even a scene totally ripped off from "Sex and the City" that is an homage to "The Way We Were".
The saddest part of all is that the main character is supposed to be 32. Although it is quite different in style and focus than "What Remains", it obviously covers some of the same ground.
I am 32 (ish) and love classic movies and even I did not get most of the references she made to pop culture. I cannot believe the author thought she could write fiction and that this even got published. There are some very funny moments, but I don't think this is the "chick lit" book some have described it to be.
What remains, (tsk) then, is a few hundred pages of lovely noise, the sense that nothing has happened, and profound relief that you no longer have to waste the psychic energy necessary to make yourself try and care about the gossamer excuses for human beings that Radziwill maneuvers about a tissue paper New York.
I really enjoy Carole on "The Real Housewives of NYC" and I absolutely loved her memoir. It made me wish I had something next to me to barf into when I was finished. A completely unsympathetic character's husband dies. She spends 100 pages not really caring about his death and deciding she didn't really love him for no real reason at all.

Her husband, Charlie, is a renowned sexologist and writer.Reading this book is a completely different experience than reading "What Remains", as it should be. I like the way Carole writes and I enjoyed her first attempt at fiction.It is my hope that she continues to write fiction because I'm really looking forward to reading her next book.This is not an actual manual for widows with step Personally I love this book..is what it promises to be - an unpretentious, funny, quirky, good read.
