Simon & Schuster #ad - Meanwhile, the apple falls far from the tree with Emma, who begins to question her environment in a way her mother never could. Told in vignettes that mine the profound from the mundane, a textured portrait emerges of a woman struggling to understand herself, her daughter, with meditations on everything from sex and death to insomnia and the catharsis of crying on the subway, and the changing landscape of New York City in the eighties and nineties.

Enter: Emma. Despite her progressive values, buoyed by a host of indelible characters, laura raises emma by herself in the same blue-blood world of private schools and summer homes she grew up in, who informs her society friends and Emma herself that she was fathered by a Swedish sperm donor; her brother, whose childhood stutter reappears in the presence of their forbidding father; an exceptionally kind male pediatrician; and her overbearing best friend, including her eccentric mother, whose life has followed the Park Avenue script in every way except for childbearing.

Laura & Emma #ad - The two sleep together. Laura & emma is an acutely insightful exploration of class and family warfare from a new author whose offbeat sensibility, understated wit, and stylish prose celebrate the comedy and pathos that make us human. One weekend in 1981 she meets Jefferson. He vanishes. Masterly deftness, funny sentence by funny sentence.
