Baker & Taylor
An exploration of contemporary concerns--love, exploitation, survival, sex roles, personal power--centers on the inner lives and relationships of an attractive, independent woman, her ineffectual husband, and his passive, easily manipulated lover

Simon and Schuster
Imprisoned by walls of their own construction, here are three people, each in midlife, in midcrisis, forced to make choices--after the rules have changed. Elizabeth, with her controlled sensuality, her suppressed rage, is married to the wrong man. She has just lost her latest lover to suicide. Nate, her gentle, indecisive husband, is planning to leave her for Lesje, a perennial innocent who prefers dinosaurs to men. Hanging over them all is the ghost of Elizabeth's dead lover...and the dizzying threat of three lives careening inevitably toward the same climax.

Relationships ending, relationships beginning, and everything in between. It was hard to really root for any of the characters though, as they were all quite flawed in their own ways. Well-written though.
