Can an overflowing cesspool lead to romance? Can you gain custody of your servants in divorce court? Can the gossip-ridden, scandal-prone citizens of the Hamptons ever find true peace? Is there really a Big Bad Wolf? Can you will yourself to die? And what happens next?

Barbara Goldowsky, long-time resident and keen observer of the Hamptons scene, provides answers that range from irresistibly funny to hauntingly serious. Her light-hearted satire exposes the silly side of glam, glitz, and celebrity worship. But along with the humor that has amused readers of local publications for years, this collection of stories includes deeply thoughtful, poetic tales-meditations on the power of love over death, the nature of immortality.

A lover of Grimm's tales and grand opera, Goldowsky introduces creatures of fable in what she calls "revisionist fairy tales for adults" as naturally as she would your next-door neighbor. The Wolf, Sleeping Beauty, the Princess Turandot, even the Devil himself, make guest appearances on this grand tour of an unusual writer's work.
