"A comedy of manners that serves as an insightful look at the lives of those in the upper classes. amp;#160; fter two sisters, Laure and Marie, learn of their parents' plan to sell the family's summer retreat, L'Agapanthe, they devise a scheme for attracting a wealthy suitor who can afford to purchase the estate. Selling it would mean more than just losing a place to go during the summer-for the sisters, it's become a necessary part of their character, their lifestyle, and their past. amp;#160; 'Agapanthe, a place of charm and nostalgia, is the perfect venue to exercise proper etiquette and intellect, though not all its visitors are socially savvy, especially when it's a matter of understanding the relationships between old money and the nouveau riche. The comedy of manners begins- with stock traders, yogis, fashion designers, models, swindlers, the Mafia, and a number of celebrity guests. amp;#160; aure-the witty, disarming, and poignant narrator-guides the reader through elegant dinners, midnight swims in the bay, and conversations about current events, literature, art, and cinema.
