Summary When her best friend and roommate abruptly moves out to get married, Susan, trying to become a gallery artist while making ends meet as a bar mitzvah photographer on Manhattan's Upper West Side, finds herself adrift in both life and love. Could a new job be the answer? What about a fling with a married, older rabbi? This 1970s New York time capsule from Claudia Weill captures the complexities and contradictions of women's lives and relationships with wry humor and refreshing frankness.
