The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, By Rebecca Miller

Click to follow

Pippa Lee, a woman in her 50s who is comfortably married to Herb, moves to an exclusive retirement home to enjoy her final years, but finds the pull of memory demanding painful reflections of the past, and her transformation from a passionate, reckless lover into a Suburban wife.

Rebecca Miller, better known as a director (this novel has been adapted for a film) proves she is much more than the daughter of a famous playwright (Arthur) with a story that is as life affirming as it is one of terrible compromise.
