Prospect Park West (Amy Sohn)

Prospect Park West
Amy Sohn

Blurb: Brooklyn's famed Park Slope neighbourhood has it all: majestic Prospect Park, acclaimed public schools, historic brownstones, and progressive values. Among bohemian bourgeois breeders, claiming a stake in Park Slope is a competitive sport.

In Amy Sohn's smart, sexy, satirical peek into the bedrooms and hearts of Prospect Park West, the lives of four women come together during one long, hot Brooklyn summer. Frustrated Oscar-winning actress Melora Leigh, eager to relieve the pressures of raising her adopted toddler, feels the seductive pull of kleptomania; Rebecca Rose, missing her formerly robust sex life, begins a dangerous flirtation with a handsome neighbourhood celebrity; Lizzie O'Donnell, a former lesbian (or 'hasbian'), wonders what draws her to women despite her sexy husband and adorable baby; and Karen Bryan Shapiro consumes herself with a powerful obsession - snagging the ultimate three-bedroom apartment in a well-maintained, P.S. 321-zoned co-op building. As the women's paths intertwine (and sometimes collide), each must struggle to keep her man, her sanity...and her playdates.
