With her trademark blend of "social satire, interpersonal drama, and urban glamour" (The New York Times), New York Times bestselling author Amy Sohn delivers a candid, unsentimental look at modern marriage. With her trademark blend of "social satire, interpersonal drama, and urban glamour" (The New York Times), Amy Sohn delivers a candid, unsentimental look at modern marriage. In her deliciously entertaining Motherland, Sohn introduces us to five parents who find themselves adrift professionally and personally. Rebecca Rose is tempted by the attentions of a former celebrity flame; Marco Goldstein, alone with two kids when his husband is away on business, turns to anonymous sex for comfort; Danny Gottlieb leaves his wife and children to pitch a film (and meet young women) in Los Angeles; Karen Bryan Shapiro, devastated by her husband's infidelity and abandonment, attempts a fresh start with a hot single dad; and former A-list actress Melora Leigh plots a star turn on Broadway to revive her Hollywood career. As their stories intersect in surprising ways and their deceptions spiral out of control, they begin to question their beliefs about family, happiness, and themselves. Equal parts moving and wickedly funny, Motherland is a fresh take on modern marriage that confirms Amy Sohn as one of our most insightful commentators on relationships and parenting in America today.
