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.
