Summary
Years ago, Aviva Grossman was an ambitious Congressional intern who made a huge mistake by blogging about her affair with her very-married boss. The Congressman emerged unscathed from the scandal but Aviva was publicly maligned. To escape the scrutiny, she became Jane Young and moved to a small Maine town to raise her child. Now, Jane decides to run for public office herself, but it's only a matter of time before her past will catch catch up to her.
Critique
Told in the voices of three generations of Grossman women and that of the Congressman's wife, this 'feminist' novel is fascinating and funny and will remind readers of Chandra Levy's and Monica Lewinsky's stories. A clever, timely and thought-provoking read.
