Maggie Darling

(2003)
A Modern Romance
A novel by

 
 
In this "wonderfully entertaining" novel, a famous domestic diva finds her perfect life falling to pieces (Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City).

She's the goddess of hearth and home, America's millionaire media maven of domesticity, Connecticut's most dazzling hostess, and everything in her world is perfect - except that Maggie Darling's picture-book life has suddenly gone off the rails.

Amid the extravagant trappings of a Christmas Eve bash, she spies her swinish stockbroker husband slipping out of a powder room moments after his creamy young colleague. The ensuing matrimonial meltdown launches Maggie on a year of romance and misadventure, starting with an ill-fated fling with a British rock star-turned-movie-actor. Back home, a sniper is loose on the Merritt Parkway and a gang known as the Businessman's Lunch Posse is terrorizing patrons of Manhattan's four-star restaurants. Meanwhile, Maggie's son Hooper drops out of college and falls into the company of the sinister gangsta rap group Chill Az Def.

As calamity piles on catastrophe, even Maggie Darling's legendary organizational skills may not be able to restore civilization as we wish we knew it . . .
