About this title

Synopsis:

Recovering from her Manhattan life in a green Atlantic outpost, newspaper woman Storey Collier encounters a man from her past, cheerful carnival intruders, her boss, and others.

From the Back Cover:

Populating this comic novel of manners is a circle of displaced southerners, summering at a Long Island enclave. Alcohol soaked and falling apart with cultivated charm, they are obsessively observed by their compatriot Storey Collier, the novel's narrator who is herself searching for Meaning in the inanities and tender twists of the day to day -- especially regarding her past but present flame, ex-baseball player Hobby Fox, "courtly and windblown and stoic". Between the southerners' dark gaiety and the Yankees who are out for plain American fun, from the ardent quips of three-year-old Al -- Storey's cousin and weekend charge -- to the eruptions of her boss, the "big cheese" newspaper editor Mr. Underwood, Sportsman's Paradise weaves an irresistible spell only Nancy Lemann could concoct.
