My least favorite of Hoffman's books - speedy read, forgettable characters, but good prose. Dreadfully sad.

My main problem with this book was the lack of a plot. Hoffman is usually so creative with her characters and what they do during the course of a novel; but this was about nothing and the characters were as ordinary as anyone you'd see on the street.

Recommended only for hardcore Hoffman fans.
