Meet Florence Gordon: blunt, brilliant, cantankerous, andpassionate, a feminist icon to young women. At seventy-five, Florence has earned her right to set downthe burdens of family and work and shape her legacy at long last. But just asshe is beginning to write her long-deferred memoir, her son Daniel returns toNew York from Seattle with his wife and daughter, and they embroil Florence intheir dramas, clouding the clarity of her days with the frustrations ofmiddle age and the confusions of youth. And then there is her left foot, whichis starting to drag.

With searing wit, sophisticated intelligence, and a tenderrespect for humanity in all its flaws, Brian Morton introduces a constellationof unforgettable characters.
