Classic Susan Isaacs, Close Relations shows the enormously popular, perennial New York Times bestselling author of Compromising Positions at her sexy and satiric best. A novel that acerbically blends sex, politics, and family craziness, Close Relations is a hilarious testament to the well-established fact that “Isaacs delivers witty, wicked satire from beginning to end” (Entertainment Weekly) and “writes wonderful books, loaded with wit, crammed with memorable characters” (Los Angeles Times).

It was a situation from which half-hour television comedies are made. "Marcia! In tonight's episode, Marcia Green's warm and winning and wise and wonderful Jewish family reminds her that she is thirty-five, divorced, and childless."
That's Marcia on her close relations. True, she's one of the best speechwriters around in the tough world of New York's smoke-filled rooms, but her family wants something else for her. No, not that Irish person she's living with. Another doctor, or at least a dentist.
But Marcia claims she's happy, getting plenty of the two things that exhilarate her most: sex and politics. She's not looking for commitment, and certainly not looking for a wealthy Harvard-educated man-about-town who is every mother's dream. Yet as wise mothers everywhere are fond of saying: you never know.About the Author:
Susan Isaacs is the bestselling author of eleven novels, two screenplays, and one work of nonfiction. She lives on Long Island.
