I’m embarrassed. But I couldn’t put the book down. The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating is the new novel by Carole Radziwill. Carole Radziwill.

Claire’s husband is a philandering ‘sexologist’ who believes love and sex can’t co-exist. But it breaks her heart when he dies and leaves her a young widow. As she braces herself for her new life alone, Claire can’t help but wonder if her late-lamented was right all along. After getting through the pain of his passing, she’s returning to the battlefield of bad dates.

So when she’s asked to write the biography of lothario movie star Jack Huxley, she’s surprised when he doesn’t live up to his sleazy reputation. Not only is he more than meets the eye, but he’s got his eye on her. Claire’s determined to banish her husband’s ghosts and prove him wrong. But having found her first Mr Right, does she deserve a second?

A unique, extraordinarily perceptive and darkly comic novel about widows, sex and love – in that order. I think Carole Radziwill’s real talent lies in non-fiction. This was an entertaining read, which is, I realize, damning with faint praise. I’d hoped for more.

While her memoir came first, published six years ago, Carole told me the novel was ten years in the making. Everything she does, she does for the show. How the heck did she wind up on Real Housewives?

This weekend, on Friday night, I left a party early in order to come home and read a book written by a Real Housewife of New York. Clearly, Radziwill is the writer of the group. I am not a fan of the Real Housewives franchise. I have seen one or two episodes of the one based in Atlanta and one episode of the one based in New York.

It helps Bushnell to blurb Radziwill as much as it helps Radziwill to get a blurb from Bushnell.

Charlie has left an unfinished manuscript about a movie star named Jack Huxley, and his agent wants Claire to complete it. Her predictably gay friend, Ethan, sends her to a psychic, who warns her she will not find love for a year.

She meets and flirts with Jack at the opening of one of his films but gets drunk and ends up sleeping with the co-star think Bradley Cooper instead of George Clooney, poor girl. Eventually, she and narcissist Jack do connect and begin an affair of sorts; it is magic when they are together, but they are together only when he calls, which is not often.

This season, the stars are dishing up their spin on humor, dating, and even mommyhood. These hilarious tales are available in e-book and book formats on-​line.
