The victim of a painful past and a fatherless childhood, Dinah Kaufman is searching for love that will last - or at least, a reasonable facsimile that comes with a warranty. She nearly found it in her marriage to hugely successful playwright Rudy Gendler. But when she fights to hold on to that now-extinct romance - or at least prevent Rudy from falling for someone new - Dinah finds herself in a variety of wild situations. She also discovers some hard-learned truths as she seeks to bridge the eternal chasm between men and women. Actress Carrie Fisher (the
Star Wars trilogy,
When Harry Met Sally) reads this follow-up to
Postcards from the Edge, her stunning literary debut.
