About this title


Upon discovering an erotic eighteenth-century novel, Margaret Nathan--a minor-league author married to an older Columbia professor--embarks on a journey of sexual self-discovery.

From the Back Cover:

"Witty, erotic, hilarious . . . . A deft comedic novel written in high style." People

"Howlingly funny . . . . A wonderfully inventive comic voice." New York Times Book Review

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 eighteenth century novel she discovers in the library.

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.

"A zestful satire . . . . A brainy romantic comedy." Chicago Tribune

"A screwball send-up of New York intelligentsia." New York

CATHLEEN SCHINE is the author of many novels, most recently The Three Weissmanns of Westport, as well as the international bestseller The Love Letter, Alice in Bed, To the Bird House, She Is Me, and The New Yorkers.
