Smart, sexy, and infinitely charming, Rhode Island Blues tells the story of Sophia Moore, a loveless and guarded thirty-four-year-old film editor in London who believes that her only living relative is her stormy and wild grandmother Felicity. Troubled by her mother's long-ago suicide and her father's abandonment, Sophia overworks, incessantly contemplates her past, and continues a flat sexual affair with the famous director of her latest film. But when she travels to Rhode Island to help Felicity settle into a retirement center, she begins to unravel mysteries about her family history while Felicity learns to gamble, falls in love, and uncovers the truth about the center's evil nurse Dawn. A hilarious tale of family secrets, nursing-home high jinks, and late-life love, Rhode Island Blues is Fay Weldon at her witty best. ."..Fay Weldon transports her wry wit, trenchant observational powers, and sublimely snappy prose to this side of the Atlantic...." -- Elle "Wry and witty, Weldon smartly skewers retirement homes, the film industry, and the deceptive elasticity of family ties." -- Entertainment Weekly "Energetic.... Weldon] possesses a wry wisdom about mating behavior." -- The New York Times Book Review "Smart and funny, Weldon's boldly plotted and finely crafted tale deftly satirizes our infinite capacity for self-delusion." -- Booklist
