Some brief overview of book

A witty new novel about three self-proclaimed "old bags" who run off to a Greek island Since their children left home, Ruth, Dania, and Bess have grown used to living wonderfully free lives. Only now theyre beset by children againthis time, their grandchildren. In order to escape, they decide to run away to Greece together for a year.

At first, settled on a glorious island, barefoot and contented, they think theyve rediscovered the wheel. But then things begin to go awry. Dionysus, a local poet, takes up with Bess, at least until his wife gets wind of things.

Dania, a therapist, is being stalked by one of her patients. And Ruths ex-lover turns up out of the blue, closely followed by the man who lost Bess her fortune. It doesnt help when the children and grandchildren also start turning up whenever they feel like it.

As Bess writes in one of Ruths weekly "Granny Go Go" columns, this is not an Enchanted April sort of year. Lynn Freeds previous novels have received rave reviews everywhere from The New York Times Book Review ("Makes us laugh while packing, finally, a punch"), to the Los Angeles Times Book Review ("Deeply absorbing and ambitious . .

. Astonishingly vivid"). In The Last Laugh she returns with a beautifully written and funny novel about money, sex, friendship, and the pleasures and perils of children.
