In the tradition of Jackie Collins, Olivia Goldsmith gives us this sexy, savvy, wickedly funny novel about three first wives who band together to take their due from the men who used them, abused them, then dumped them.
Elise, Brenda, and Annie were all first wives inhabiting the headier spheres of New York society. Then in their forties, with their husbands at the pinnacle of success, they were abandoned for "trophy wives"--younger, blonder, and more decorative models. Now, they form "The First Wives Club" with the mission of getting even. How they discover the sweetness of revenge, return in kind what they have been dealt by their exes, and reclaim their own identities, ambitions, and abilities to love again, makes this an original, exhilarating, and unforgettable stow.
Olivia Goldsmith's first novel was The First Wives Club which was made into a successful Hollywood film starring Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn and Bette Midler. This was followed by Flavor of the Month, Bestseller, The Switch, Young Wives, Bad Boy, Insiders, Uptown Girl and Wish Upon a Star, several of which are in development as films. She died unexpectedly in 2004.
