Rameau's Niece

by Cathleen Schine

Rameau's Niece Synopsis

In this delightful novel from an author who "e;has been favored in so many ways by the muse of comedy,"e;* we meet Margaret Nathan, the brilliant but forgetful author of an unlikely bestseller. Happily married to a benevolently egotistical, slightly dull but sexyprofessor, Margaret seems blessed--until she finds herself seduced by an eighteenth-century novel she discovers in the library. Wrapped in its lascivious world, Margaret begins to imitate its protagonist, embarking on a hilarious jaunt around Manhattan in search of renewed passion. Will she find fulfillment through her escapades or settle for her husband? Part romantic comedy, part intellectual parody, Rameau's Niece is wise, affecting, and thoroughly entertaining. * New York Review of Books
