This is the story of one summer in the life of Natalie Simon, creative VP of a major New York ad agency, hard drinking, sexy lady, woman in control of her life.
This the the story of the summer when it all almost falls apart.
She's had it! Her immature tyrant boss--"boy wonder" Peter Marcus-makes her feel like she's losing her touch. Her smug husband--pipe smoking writer Jerry Weber--finally agress that their marriage is a sham. Her sixteen-year daughter drives her crazy, and even her best friends get on her nerves.
That's why she's sunk every penny she has into a beach house on Fire Island. To escape from it all. But problems like Natalie's don't just go away.
