American Suite (2010)

This novel includes the diaries of three women, a mother and her two daughters, from a wealthy East Coast Protestant family. Aris is the daughter who left her career and long-time boyfriend to move to the Midwest. She immediately falls in love with a perfect man, only to later learn he has a wife and two children. She then falls for a Hollywood screenwriter. This relationship spirals downward once Arisa learns that their relationship is material for his new movie, Legs Wide Open. Arisa's life takes a turn for the even more bizarre after she steals the screenwriter's dog and proceeds to fall in love with an ex-con. Sophie, the seemingly happily married daughter, sees her life start to unravel when her husband loses his job and she begins to fall for her son's teenage tutor. Rosalyn, the matriarch of the family, is devastated after the loss of her husband of 44 years. She finally experiences joy again when she meets Saul, the love of her life. This is a novel that aims to capture the craziness of a real life family. If happily-ever-after novels are not your thing, this funny dark novel will entertain. (AO)
